La Place de l'Hopital a Strasbourg
1878-1970, American

Etching, image size 6 1/2 x 5 7/8 inches, 1913, pencil signed. Herman Webster was an American artist who moved to Paris in the early 20th century to attend the Academy Julien. There he studied under J. P. Laurens and Eugene Bejot, and was also greatly influenced by the etchings of Whistler and Meryon. He traveled extensively throughout Europe, specializing in finely detailed architectural views, cityscapes and landscapes. This is an early pencil signed proof of this etching; it was later published in a larger edition by the Gazette des Beaux-Arts in 1920.
