Martin Lewis (1881-1962), Chance Meeting – – 1941, Drypoint.

McCarron 131. Edition 105. Signed in pencil lower right [initialled in the plate lower left], in good condition.

10 3/8 x 7 3/8 inches; sheet 14 l/2 x 9 3/4 inches

A fine impression, on ivory/cream laid paper, with full/wide margins.

Commissioned by the Society of American Etchers, Brooklyn.

McCarron notes: “This is one of Lewis’s most complex plates, one in which he was able to harmonize many diverse elements.” The print is replete with commercial and social references – one magazine hanging in the window is called “G-Man”, the other “True Love.” In the far background left we can see another “chance meeting.”
