Caissons on Vesey Street (New York) - JOSEPH PENNELL
Etching, 1924, Wuerth 854, edition probably 75. 13 3/4 x 9 1/8 in. Signed in pencil. This is a fine, atmospheric impression printed on antique laid paper. The margins are full and the condition is fine. This oustanding print depicts the construction of the New York Telephone building, known at the time as the Barclay-Vesey Building, which was completed in 1926. (In the background is the Woolworth Building.) This early art deco edifice was heavily damaged on 9/11 and has since been restored.
