"City Street Corner" by Harry Hering, Amer., (1887-1967)
Etching, probably 1940's, 5 x 8-5/16, ed. unknown, signed in pencil, on smooth cream wove paper, slight foxing to left margin. Hering captures the light, textures and street level activity of this city corner viewed from an upper floor across the street. It's informal sketchbook quality still conveys a realism and authentic experience. Both this print and the other in inventory share the same vantage point, though the means differ and we have here a city scene and the other is a country setting.
