Soaring New York - HOWARD COOK - aquatint and soft-ground etching

HOWARD COOK
American, (1901-1980)

Aquatint and soft-ground etching, 1931 (date in pencil, 1932), Duffy 165, edition of 75. 8 7/8 x 11 3/4 in. Signed and dated in pencil, lower right. Numbered "3/40" in the lower left corner. This is a fine impression printed on a light cream wove paper. The margins are full. The condition is very good with faint traces of old tape adhesive showing along the margin edges, verso, and a small repair in the upper right margin corner, well away from the image. This rare print is located in the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, Georgetown University and the Dallas Museum of Art. Current scholarship lists five known states of this print and this is the fifth and final state. It's possible the entire edition was never printed given the rarity of this work.      SOLD
