Bridge Over Canal, Amsterdam -  MARIN

Bridge Over Canal, Amsterdam
JOHN MARIN
American, (1872-1953)
Etching, 1906, Zigrosser 13 (ii/II), edition 30. 5 15/16 x 7 1/2 in. Signed and dated in the plate. Signed in pencil, lower right. This is a superb impression of this lovely, rare work. The paper is a cream Japanese and the margins are full. The condition is excellent. Like Whistler and his Amsterdam etchings, Marin appreciated the uniqueness of every impression and applied the ink in such a dramatic way that no two impressions are exactly the same. We sold a rare first state of this print a couple of years ago and the inking was substantially different than this one. Other impressions are found at Colby College, The Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Art Institute of Chicago.
$4,500

Notre Dame, Paris -  MARIN

Notre Dame, Paris
JOHN MARIN
American, (1872-1953)

Ohmpeer -  MARKHAM

Ohmpeer
KYRA MARKHAM
American, (1891-1967)
Lithograph, 1944, edition 25. 13 3/8 x 10 1/8 in. Signed, dated and titled in pencil. The edition size is also written in pencil below the image. This is a fine impression in fine condition. The margins are wide and probably full. A very good, short biography about Markham is found in Paths to the Press, Printmaking and American Women Artists, 1910-1960 (2006), pages 194-195. This is a nice example of her later work.

Jersey City Landscape -  MARSH

Jersey City Landscape
REGINALD MARSH
American, (1898-1954)
Etching and engraving, 1939, Sasowsky 187 (iii/III), edition 20 plus five trial proofs. 7 7/8 x 11 7/8 in. Signed and dated in the plate and signed in pencil lower right. A fine impression of this rare print. In very good condition apart from traces of an old tape adhesive along the top edge of the sheet. The margins appear to be full. An outstanding example of Marsh's skills as a printmaker.
SOLD

George Washington Bridge (Palisades) -  MARSH

George Washington Bridge (Palisades)
REGINALD MARSH
American, (1898-1954)
Etching, 1936, Sasowsky 166 (i/III); one of only three proofs in this state. 8 x 10 in. Signed in pencil, lower right. This is a superb impression printed on a white wove paper. The condition is fine and the margins are wide. This appealing print is quite rare with only five impressions listed in the final state. There are only six artist's proofs listed in the catalogue in addition to the above five impressions. (We sold a third state impression several years ago.) We feel Marsh prints are underrated and undervalued in the current market. His editions tend to be small, in general, which makes them much harder to find in signed, lifetime impressions.
SOLD

Two Models on a Bed -  MARSH

Two Models on a Bed
REGINALD MARSH
American, (1898-1954)
Lithograph, 1928, Sasowsky 9, edition 15. 9 x 10 1/2 in. Initialed and dated on the stone. Signed in pencil and inscribed, "15 proofs." Here we have a fine impression printed on chine appliqué. The margins are full and the condition is fine. This early figurative study was done in Paris.

Irving Place Burlesque -  MARSH

Irving Place Burlesque
REGINALD MARSH
American, (1898-1954)
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.

New York Harbour -  MCBEY

New York Harbour
JAMES MCBEY
Scottish, (1883-1959)
Etching, 1941, Hardie/Carter 279, edition 65 plus 19 trial proofs. 10 1/4 x 15 in. Signed, titled and dated in the plate. Signed and numbered in ink. Here we have a fine impression with probably the full margins. The condition is also fine. This is one of McBey's best views of New York as pictured from Brooklyn across the East River.
$1,650

California, San Luis Obispo -  MCBEY

California, San Luis Obispo
JAMES MCBEY
Scottish, (1883-1959)
Etching, 1944, Hardie/Carter 283, edition 48. 6 1/2 x 14 1/8 in. Signed, titled and dated in the plate, lower left. Signed and numbered in ink. This is a fine, luminous impression printed on cream wove paper. The margins are wide and the condition is fine. (There's a little bit of brown paper tape along the left and right margin and a fraction along the top edge at right.) This appealing, later work by McBey shows his fascination with the diversity of the American landscape. In this same year he produced an etching of Ranchos de Taos in New Mexico and, of course, he was quite familiar with New York.
