Brooklyn Bridge, No. 6 (Swaying)

John Marin (American, 1870–1953) Published by The New Republic
When Marin returned to the United States from Europe in 1910, he no longer bothered to rework a single plate through several states to finalize a composition. When rethinking an image, he generally allowed himself the luxury of starting from scratch, using copper plates almost as if they were sheets of paper on a sketch pad.
