George Washington Bridge -  MARSH

George Washington Bridge
Etching and engraving, 1936, Sasowsky 166 (iii/III). 8 x 9 7/8 in. Signed and titled in pencil and also inscribed "forty proofs". A superb impression with full margins. Very good condition apart from old hinges at top of sheet and very minor discoloration within the previous mat opening. The catalogue raisonne cites five impressions by White in the final state and it is doubtful that the full edition was ever printed. This is a very rare work.

Irving Place Burlesque -  MARSH

Irving Place Burlesque
Etching with engraving, 1930, Sasowsky 101 (viii/VIII), edition 33. 9 7/8 x 11 7/8 in. Signed and numbered in pencil. This is a superb impression of this large, exemplary work. The paper is a white wove and the margins are full. (They are unevenly trimmed which is often the case with Marsh.) The condition is generally fine other than for a few specks of foxing in the lower left corner below the platemark. This plate was reprinted in 1969 by the Whitney Museum. The Irving Place Theatre was located at the southwest corner of Irving Place and East 15th Street. The building was demolished in 1984.

(This information applies to many of his prints.)
