Marin, Sestiere di Dorso Duro

Sestiere di Dorso Duro, Venice

Etching and drypoint, 1907, Zigrosser 61 only state, 178 x 129 mm. Fine, atmospheric impression with plate tone, on japan paper with full margins, signed in pencil and numbered 19 from the edition of 40; surface abrasion retouched in the upper left corner. Marin’s early, Whistler-influenced etchings occupy a different aesthetic world from his later works, but are no less effective for that. Oddly, no artist seemed to absorb the late Whistlerian etching style better than Marin and he never studied with or even met Whistler, but only knew his prints. With Marin, it came naturally. He saw the way Whistler saw, drew the way he drew, etched the way he etched.
