      Shadows, Garage at Night.

      Conté crayon on light tan wove paper, circa 1928. 257x320 mm; 10x12 3/4 inches. Signed "Martin Lewis P.L." in pencil by the artist's daughter-in-law, Patricia Lewis, lower right recto.

      Ex-collection Lucille Deming Lewis Collection, the artist's widow, with the estate ink stamp, verso; private collection, Connecticut.

      This work is a study for the same-titled 1928 drypoint by Lewis (McCarron 75). According to McCarron, "there is a prepatory drawing for this print in charcoal, pencil and brown crayon on gray brown paper (LDL-323, 255x330 mm), signed by Patricia Lewis, after the artist's death," (The Prints of Martin Lewis: A Catalogue Raisonné, New York, 1995, page 130).
