  Eugene Camille Fitsch   (1892-1972)

 
  42nd STREET, ca. 1938. Ed. 16/20. Signed, titled, and numbered in pencil, and inscribed "Imp.". In a different hand and pencil, it is inscribed to Jean Lawran (not fully legible) and has an erased date(?) of 58. This is a nighttime view of the Times Square area, with lights blazing and many pedestrians, some very well dressed, including one man in a top hat. The marquee of the Amsterdam (now owned by Disney) theater announces ‘Super Thrill/Murder…’ and the United Cigar shop (now gone) clock reads 9 p.m. A small sign offers something for 10 cents. Expertly conserved, and lined with mulberry paper. Fitsch taught the lithography night class at the Art Students League starting in the 1920s.
