This Earl Horter etching measures 7 3/8 x 7 1/8 inches and is pencil signed on the l.r. Created c. 1930 on medium weight paper. The image depicts a pleasantly cluttered entrance with skyscrapers surrounding it.

He was largely self-taught, but became a member of the Society of Illustrators at a young age. He exhibited at the Panama Pacific Exhibition in 1915, the Art Institute of Chicago in 1932, and at the Philadelphia Print Club during the 1930's.

Drawing

Dover Market
1915-2010, Lithuanian-American

This pencil drawing by Jack Levine measures 5 1/2 x 5 inches. It is pencil signed on the lower right. Levine was best known for his satires on modern life and political corruption. Born in South Boston into a large family, his drawing abilities were apparent at an young age. At 14 he entered a painting program at Harvard and a few years later was employed in the Works Progress Administration. His lower class childhood was often a subject of his paintings and he became known for "telling it like it is".
