Print

Elms by the Lake
1900-1988, Italian-American

A finely detailed etching by Luigi Lucioni, this image measures 7 7/8 x 10 7/8 inches and was published by the Associated American Artists in 1938 in an edition of 152. It is pencil signed and is number 58 in the Embury catalog. This image is in excellent condition and features a rich impression printed with ample margins on a cream colored wove type paper. Lucioni was known for his remarkably detailed etchings of the New England landscape, and this image is a great example of the textures and sense of atmosphere that he could bring to life.
