New York from Weehawken
1883-1959, Scottish

A remarkable etching by James McBey of the New York City skyline from Weehawken, NJ, this etching measures 8 x 14 7/8 inches, 1940, cat: Hardie-277, plate signed and dated, hand signed and numbered "XXVII" in ink. Born into poverty McBey was primarily self-taught, becoming a very well respected artist and leading figure of the British Etching Revival. He traveled extensively throughout Europe, America and the Middle East, creating remarkable etchings of the places he visited. McBey lived in New York for several years, and his images of the city are considered some of his finest work.
