Hassam, Childe. UNION SQUARE. C.89. Etching and Drypoint, 1896. Edition size not known, but apparently small as this print is seldom seen. Signed with the cypher and "imp." in pencil, and also with the cypher, and "NY" and "1896" in the plate. Provenance: William Macbeth Gallery, NY. 4 1/4 x 5 3/4 inches, 105 x 145 mm. The sheet has been roughly torn along three of its four edges, with losses and tears in the margins; two pieces have been replaced by a conservator along the lower edge, but even without these, there is sufficient undamaged margin on each side to allow for adequate matting, and everything within the platemark is in excellent condition. Framed, with the label of Macbeth Gallery preserved. A beautifully achieved impressionistic image of great delicacy. Scarce and special.
