  Joseph Pennell   (1857-1926)

 
  WOOLWORTH THROUGH THE ARCH, 1921. Wuerth 785. Ed. ca. 200. Signed in pencil and inscribed "imp." Printed on antique laid paper, as Whistler did. Architect Cass Gilbert's 1913 "Cathedral of Commerce," seen through the arch of the Municipal Building, was then the tallest building in the city. After nearly a century Gilbert's masterpiece is still the most famous building in downtown New York. A bright impression in excellent condition.
