Fifth Avenue, Noon.

Etching, 1916. 251x190 mm; 9 7/8x7 1/2 inches, full margins. First state (of 2), before the slight reduction of the plate along the left edge. Artist's proof, aside from the edition of approximately only 20. Signed with the artist's cypher and inscribed "imp" in pencil, lower right. A brilliant, richly-inked impression of this very scarce etching, with sharp plate edges, printing ink finger-print smudges at the sheet edges and strong plate tone.

A view of Fifth Avenue, New York, drawn from life, looking north from 34th Street (from the site of the Empire State building today). Cortissoz/Clayton 77.
