A fine clear impression.

Peter Platt was a favorite Sloan printer.

Tammany Hall was the notorious headquarters of the New York City political machine. Sloan writes: “Old Tammany Hall, the headquarters of the bosses of New York City….lurked, menacing, in dingy red brick, facing the tawdry amusements of East Fourteenth Street.”

Sloan’s painting of Tammany Hall in the Metropolitan Museum in New York, done for the Federal Art Project, was copied directly from this etching.
