"Venice from the Redentore" by Ernest D. Roth, Amer., (1879-1964)
Regular price $450
Etching, 1913, ed. unknown, old tape residue top edge verso, scattered inky fingerprints presumably the artist's, on verso, signed & dated in pencil, titled at the lower left margin edge, framers notation in lower right margin corner, on thin cream laid paper, A fine and fresh, crisply inked and wiped impression with a veil of granular plate tone, heavier at the top of the sky, the delicacy of the rigging on the moored boats and architectural details of St. Marks and the Pallazzi adding a palpable sense of distance and monumentality. A beautiful impression of this great Venetian subject by Roth, one of two on different papers in inventory.
