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's style here has a personal handwriting which captures the light, textures and street level activity of this city corner seen from above. It's informal sketchbook quality still manages to convey a realism and authenticity to this scene. Both this print and the one below share the same vantage point, though the means differ and we have here a city and below a country setting.
Photogravure, ca. 1930's, 8-7/8 x 10-9/16, ed. 100, signed & dedicated in pencil, on smooth cream wove paper, slight foxing to margins, toned in mat opening. Though this appears to be an aquatint and in fact was printed from an intaglio plate, there is a uniform pattern to the tonal areas as in a half tone. I suspect that Hering experimented with this commercial technique and considered this an original print; signing and dedicating it to fellow artist Chaim Gross; who like Hering, had a strong presence in the Provincetown art community.
