Crystal and Jade -  ARMS

Crystal and Jade
Etching and aquatint, 1936-1940, Fletcher 301 (vi/VII), edition 377. 7 1/2 x 6 5/8 in. Signed in pencil and inscribed "VI" with "sp" below (special proof.) This is a fine impression with full margins. The condition is also fine. The catalogue description of this plate is ambiguous and there's no indication of any special proofs printed. This is a trial proof "iv" of the sixth state. There's no watermark. This is a lovely and unique image.

Evening, East River, New York -  ARMS

Evening, East River, New York
Etching and aquatint, 1919, Fletcher 26 (vi/VI), edition 25. 3 1/2 x 5 1/4 in. Signed, dated and numbered in pencil. This is a fine impression printed on light cream laid paper. The margins are full. The condition is good other than for some toning within an early mat opening and traces of old hinges at the top corners. This early work was also printed in color in an edition of 50.

Shadows of Venice -  ARMS

Shadows of Venice
Etching with aquatint, 1930, Fletcher 229 (ii/II), edition 100 (140?) 10 1/8 x 12 1/2 in. This is a fine, luminous impression printed on an old sheet of cream laid paper, probably an end leaf from a book or ledger. The margins are full and the condition is fine. (There's a soft crease in the upper margin at left and another in the upper right margin corner; both not affecting the image. This very desirable print depicts the Ponte di Rialto, a favorite subject of etchers in modern times. (Note: the catalogue lists a printing of 127 impressions in 1930 and then an additional 13 proofs between 1930 and 1938. This impression is inscribed "edition 100.")

The Butterfly -  ARMS

The Butterfly
Etching and aquatint printed in colors, 1920, Fletcher 48 (ii/II); edition of 100 printed in colors. 10 3/8 x 7 1/4 in. Signed and dated in pencil, lower right. This is a fine impression in fine condition with probably the full (1") margins. The condition is excellent. This is an outstanding print, especially as seen here with color. The scene is a lake in Italy, possibly Lake Maggiore.
