JOHN MARIN
Downtown, the El.

Etching on cream wove paper, 1921. 173x222 mm; 6 3/4x8 3/4 inches, full margins. Edition of approximately 275. Signed in pencil, lower left. Published by The New Republic, New York. A superb, dark impression with warm plate tone.

According to Zigrosser, the total edition of The New Republic portfolio exceeded 500, but the quota for Marin prints was divided between this print and another, Brooklyn Bridge and Lower New York, etching, 1913 (Zigrosser 106), therefore making Marin's etchings scarcer than the Hopper, Sloan, Bacon, Miller and Haskell prints in the same portfolio. Zigrosser 134.
