McCarron 94. Drypoint on laid paper, full margins.
Edition of 70, including 6 trial proofs.

An unusually rich impression of Martin Lewis’ famous drypoint, in very fine condition.  This impression was in its original 1931 frame from Kennedy Galleries, with a  December 13, 1931 New York Times inside.  Rainy Day, Queens is a testament to the artist’s technical virtuosity in capturing the moody effects of a rainy street scene.
