  William Walcot   (1874-1943)

 
  THE BROOKLYN BRIDGE, 1923. Ed. 375. Signed in pencil. This is printed on wove paper watermarked "A.C. & H.W.D., Inc., New York." Walcot was commissioned to do a set of NYC etchings which were published by Dickens in New York and London. The municipal building looms large at the left of the bridge and there is wonderful boat traffic in the East River but, as always, the Brooklyn Bridge is the starring attraction. Apart from a slight vertical smudge of printers' ink at the top right, this is a delicate impression in good condition.
