Ernest D. Roth, Amer., (1879-1964), Jeanette Park-South St. and Coenties Slip, Etching, 1946, Ed. unknown, 11 x 15, signed, titled, & dated in the plate, inscribed "Trial Proof-Hand Wiped Clean" by Roth in pencil lower left margin corner, on cream laid paper. There is a handling crease left of the skyscraper on the right visible in raking light, and tiny traces of brown paper tape to top and bottom margin edges from the stretching and drying during printing. The same deft skill and perceptive eye which had graced Roth’s etchings of Venice and other European subjects earlier in the century were turned upon New York City’s changing skyline in a series of late monumental views. Here locals chat on the sidewalk outside the corner shops, or cross the street to the tree lined park. The street level vantage point emphasizes the dizzying height of the buildings which newly distinguished America’s most modern of cities.
