  Joseph Pennell   (1857-1926)

  THE CITY--EVENING, 1909 . Wuerth 506. Ed. ca. 50. Signed and noted "imp." in pencil, and printed on fine laid paper. Pennell lived in England for many years, and was an avid documenter of London. He excelled in the use of the difficut mediuim of mezzotint, using it to create dramatic nighttime views. In this impression he has increased the darkness in the sky and generally created a smokier look than in some other impressions of this mezzotint. Pennell followed Whistler's example in trimming margins, and this print has very narrow margins at top and left, is trimmed to the plate mark on the right, and has a 3/8 inch bottom margin, otherwise in very fine condition. A scarce print.
  Mezzotint, 10 x 14 13/16 inches. SOLD.
