  John Sloan   (1871-1951)

 
  HIS APPOINTED ROUNDS, 1938. Ed. 75. Morse 304 ii/ii. Signed, titled and numbered in pencil. This print is from the first edition of 50 printed by White in 1938. In 1951 Roth printed 25 more. The planned edition had been 100. This sad scene of an exhausted mailman collapsed on the sidewalk under a huge mailbag is very touching and typical of Sloan's heartfelt scenes of NYC life. In very fine condition.
 
 
  Etching and mezzotint, 5 7/16 x 6 7/8 inches. $1500.
