A Note in Pattern # 3 - CHARLES W. DAHLGREEN
Medium: etching and aquatint
CHARLES W. DAHLGREEN
Etching and aquatint, circa 1933, edition 100. 7 7/8 x 10 3/4 in. Signed, numbered and titled in pencil. This is a superb impression of this rare print. The margins are full and the condition is fine. This memorable, modernist image shows the Chrysler Motors Building at "A Century of Progress" Exhibition in Chicago, a.k.a. The 1933 World's Fair. (The building was designed by the Chicago firm of Holabird & Root.) This print is illustrated and discussed in Graphic Excursions, American Prints in Black and White from the collection of Reba and Dave Williams (see pages 141-142.) (The Smithsonian owns an impression of this print in a variant state.)
For some reason this exceptional American print rarely appears for sale. Our impression was exhibited at the Art Institute of Chicago, based on an early exhibition label.
