Dewey Triumphal Arch

$750.00

This elegant and detailed etching by Charles Mielatz measures 14 3/4 x 10 7/8 inches. Created in 1899 in a very small edition of 25 proofs, it depicts the American Naval Arch on the corner of 5th Avenue and 23rd Street in New York City. It is plate signed and dated and also pencil signed. On the lower margin is a pencil sketch of a US Navy battleship. Born in Germany and arriving in the US as a young boy, Mielatz went on to study at the Chicago School of Design. His first prints were of the New England landscape but after visiting NYC the urban landscape became his subject of choice. He took a great deal of time with his craft and was a early pioneer of the multi-plate color process. Mielatz was a member of the New York Etching Club, the Brooklyn Society of Etchers and was an associate member of the National Academy of Design.

The Old Watermill

$495.00

This is a luminous original etching of a rural watermill at twilight by American artist Charles Mielatz. The image size is 19 3/4 x 11 3/4 inches, published in 1886 by Fishel, Adler & Schwartz, remarque in the lower margin, pencil signed. Mielatz was born in Germany but came to the United States as a young boy, studying at the Chicago School of Design, although much of his etching technique was self taught. Mielatz was a member of New York Etching Club and was one of the first etchers elected to the National Academy of Design, where he was also the chief instructor of etching for many years. This is one of Mielatz's early etchings, which like most of his early work is done in the American painter-etcher style with a tonalist inspired sense of fading light.
