CHARLES F. W. MIELATZ
Color etching and aquatint with added pencil work on the legs of the soldiers, 1918, edition unknown; extremely rare. 13 1/4 x 4 3/8 in. Signed and dated in the plate and signed in pencil. This is a superb impression printed by the artist and inscribed "three aquatint and one line plate...trial roof." The condition is fine apart from a very faint suggestion of discoloration within a previous mat opening. Full margins. The scene depicted here is Armistice Day in New York, 1918. This is a remarkable, experimental American color print.
