About

Yorkville Night. 1947. Drypoint. McCarron 140. 8 1/2 x 11 3/8 (sheet 10 7/8 x 14 1/2). Edition of 18 recorded impressions, including 1 trial proof. Provenance: Henry Christensen, III. A brilliant, luminous impression with rich, velvety burr, printed on cream laid paper. An extremely rare image. Signed in pencil. Housed in a dramatic 18 1/4 x 21-inch burled wood frame. The drypoint depicts evening shoppers at an open-air market under the El train. According to McCarron, page 232, "Lewis crossed out two rejected titles in his record book, Vanishing New York and Corner Fruit Stand, before deciding on this title. He listed the location as Eighty-ninth Street and Third Ave, near his studio at 439 Wast Eighty-ninth Street in Manhattan's Yorkville section." The Bruce Museum said of Lewis: "Recognized as one of the premier American printmakers of the first half of the 20th century, Martin Lewis left an indelible mark on the landscape of the art world. Lewis was an acknowledged master of the intaglio techniques of printmaking, experimenting with multiple processes including etching, aquatint, engraving and drypoint. A highly skilled printer, Lewis created magnificent impressions that captured the energy, bustle and occasional solitude of all aspects of city life in New York. With his remove to Connecticut in 1932, Lewis instigated another topic through his printmaking: country life. This firmly entrenched Lewis as a prominent America scene artist, who captured the intersection between the urban and rural environments and shed light on the slowly emerging suburban culture." Martin Lewis created iconic images that captured the energy, bustle and occasional solitude of all aspects of city life in New York.
