Description: Etching, aquatint and drypoint on paper. Signed in pencil. Image measures 9.75" x 8".

Comments: This lovely print shows Madison Square Park and centers around a large flagpole in the foreground. At the center is the New York Life Building, completed only 10 years earlier. The atmospheric sky and light glinting off the building's gilded roof are the result of the artist selectively wiping the platetone. The print is in excellent condition. Louis Leon Dolice (1892-1960) was an Austrian-born artist who moved to New York City in 1920. The city's environs, particularly in Greenwich Village, quickly inspired him to produce the etchings of local buildings and streets that would define his career. He became particularly well-known for documenting the historical parts of the city--such as docks, el trains, and old buildings--that, in this period, were quickly disappearing. This beautiful print exemplifies how Dolice used his skills to convey his love for his adopted home.
