Cleveland Coxe, 1887, NY" is printed on the lower center, with a remarque of an anchor in the lower left margin. Framed.

This is a fantastic scene of the railroad tracks and surrounding industrial buildings in Oberhausen, Germany by American artist Joseph Pennell. Etching, image size 9 3/8 x 12 1/2 inches, published in 1910 in an edition of 50 impressions, cat: Wuerth- 606, pencil signed "J. Pennell imp", the 'imp' indicating that Pennell printed this impression himself. This etching is printed on an early antique watermarked laid type paper with trimmed margins and a tab signature, in the style of Whistler. There are two small rust spots which appear to be in the paper, as is common in early paper of this type. Pennell was one of the foremost American printmakers of the early 20th century, and was close friends with James McNeill Whistler, whose influence is evident in many of Pennell's images as well as his sense of experimentation with etching technique. Pennell was especially known for his images of cityscapes and architecture; in this image the trains and surrounding factories provide the structure of the composition, while ghostly, quickly rendered figures give a human presence and sense of scale to the bustling railyard.
