  Joseph Pennell   (1857-1926)

 
  THE BRIDGE, 1923. Wuerth 800. Ed. 150. Signed in pencil. "Etched from memory at a talk on etching." (Wuerth). Demonstrations of etching skills were popular during the etching craze of the 1920s. John Taylor Arms was another practitioner of this elitist showmanship. In this etching, Pennell, a major figure in printmaking for many years, brought the Woolworth building north, which improves the composition if not the accuracy. In very good condition.
