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.
