Etching and aquatint, 1929, Czestochowski 6 (iv/IV), edition 100. 11 3/4 x 6 1/2 in. Signed, dated and titled in pencil. This is a fine, luminous impression of this exceptional American print.

Civic Insomnia (New York) -  GEERLINGS

Civic Insomnia (New York)
Aquatint, 1932, Czestochowski 28 (v/V), edition 38. 10 7/8 x 14 1/16 in. Signed in pencil, lower left. This is a superb, luminous impression printed on a light blue-green WHATMAN wove paper. The condition is fine and the margins are full. This masterpiece of American printmaking is quite rare today. The catalogue lists twenty-nine impressions in museum collections which includes trial proofs and early state impressions. Like John Taylor Arms, Louis Rosenberg and Samuel Chamberlain, Geerlings was trained as an architect and later took up printmaking. This remarkable view of New York at night is done in pure aquatint without the assistance of etching to help define forms.

Civic Insomnia (New York) -  GEERLINGS

Civic Insomnia (New York)
Aquatint, 1932, Czestochowski 28 (V/V), edition 38. 10 7/8 x 14 1/16 in. Signed in pencil, lower right. Inscribed in the lower left, "1st of 4, 5th trial state, June 4, 1932." This is a superb impression of this tour de force of aquatint. The condition is very good. There's just a faint suggestion of pinpoint foxing marks in the margins, all very inconspicuous. The margins are probably full and untrimmed and the top margin is somewhat narrow. This is a trial proof of the fifth and final state and the printed surface of the image is in superb condition. The catalogue lists twenty-nine impressions in museum collections and consequently this print rarely comes onto the market today. Like his contemporaries; John Taylor Arms, Louis Rosenberg, and Samuel Chamberlain, Geerlings was trained as an architect and later took up printmaking.
