  Joseph Pennell   (1857-1926)

 
  NEW YORK FROM GOVERNOR'S ISLAND, 1915. Wuerth 668. Ed. ca. 80. Signed in pencil. This is a rich impression printed on pale gray watermarked laid paper. Pennell, like his idol Whistler, was very particular about using fine papers. This scene shows the Manhattan skyline (in reverse) as it used to look. The Brooklyn Bridge is in the distance at the left. In excellent condition.
