Bridge Over Canal, Amsterdam -  MARIN

Bridge Over Canal, Amsterdam
JOHN MARIN
American, (1872-1953)
Etching, 1906, Zigrosser 13 (ii/II), edition 30. 5 15/16 x 7 1/2 in. Signed and dated in the plate. Signed in pencil, lower right. This is a superb impression of this lovely, rare work. The paper is a cream Japanese and the margins are full. The condition is excellent. Like Whistler and his Amsterdam etchings, Marin appreciated the uniqueness of every impression and applied the ink in such a dramatic way that no two impressions are exactly the same. We sold a rare first state of this print a couple of years ago and the inking was substantially different than this one. Other impressions are found at Colby College, The Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Art Institute of Chicago.

The margins are wide and probably full. A very good, short biography about Markham is found in Paths to the Press, Printmaking and American Women Artists, 1910-1960 (2006), pages 194-195. This is a nice example of her later work.

George Washington Bridge (Palisades) -  MARSH

George Washington Bridge (Palisades)
REGINALD MARSH
American, (1898-1954)
Etching, 1936, Sasowsky 166 (i/III); one of only three proofs in this state. 8 x 10 in. Signed in pencil, lower right. This is a superb impression printed on a white wove paper. The condition is fine and the margins are wide. This appealing print is quite rare with only five impressions listed in the final state. There are only six artist's proofs listed in the catalogue in addition to the above five impressions. (We sold a third state impression several years ago.) We feel Marsh prints are underrated and undervalued in the current market. His editions tend to be small, in general, which makes them much harder to find in signed, lifetime impressions.

Etching with engraving, 1930, Sasowsky 101 (viii/VIII), edition 33. 9 7/8 x 11 7/8 in. Signed and numbered in pencil. This is a superb impression of this large, exemplary work. The paper is a white wove and the margins are full. (They are unevenly trimmed which is often the case with Marsh.) The condition is generally fine other than for a few specks of foxing in the lower left corner below the platemark. This plate was reprinted in 1969 by the Whitney Museum. The Irving Place Theatre was located at the southwest corner of Irving Place and East 15th Street. The building was demolished in 1984.
