WALTER WILLIAMS (1920 - 1988)

Aquatint on cream wove paper, 1955. 381x450 mm; 15x17 3/4 inches, full margins. Signed, titled and dated in pencil, lower margin. A very dark, inky impression of a very scarce print.

This print is closely related to Third Avenue El, gouache on paper, 1955, in the Evans-Tibbs Collection, and shows the influence of Ben Shahn and Gregorio Prestopino, with whom Williams studied at the Brooklyn Museum School.
