The Arsenal-Central Park
Signed and dated in the plate, lower right. Signed in pencil and inscribed, "proof selected for Mrs. Lowinson by Childe Hassam." Here we have a fine impression of this very rare print. The margins are small but appear to be full. The condition is very good other then for two small brown paper hinges at the top and a small, subtle smudge or stain below the signature. The Arsenal Building is one of two buildings to predate Central Park. It's located on 64th Street off of Fifth Avenue. It was built between 1847 and 1851. Mrs. Lowinson was a major collector of Hassam's work and her stamp is on the verso (not in Lugt).
