Ernest D. Roth

Etching, 1945, Ed. unknown, 12 x 15-1/8, signed, titled, & dated in the plate, signed, titled & dated in pencil, on cream laid paper. Tape residue to top corners and associated thining at top left corner verso, well away from subject. The same deft skill and perceptive eye whch 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, many of which showed the city from the harbor. Here the bustling human prescence along the storefronts and seawall emphasize the dizzying height of the buildings which distinguished America’s most modern of cities.
