Amsterdam from Ransdorp - JAMES MCBEY
Etching, 1910, Hardie 74; edition only 40. 4 15/16 x 8 15/16 in. Signed and dated in the plate. Signed and numbered in ink. This is a superb, luminous impression of this outstanding early print. The margins are full and the condition is fine. (The paper is a 19th century sheet from an old book or ledger.) The influence of Rembrandt is here quite evident but this print also reminds us of Whistler's time in Holland from just a few years earlier. Zaandam (Kennedy 414) and The Mill (K413) are similar in their appreciation of the Dutch countryside. This etching is rare today and is clearly among the very best prints by McBey of Holland.
