Description

Vienna born Leon L. Dolice focused much of his etching on the architecture of New York and other East Coast cities during the depression.

"Mount Vernon Place - Church ME Baltimore" is viewed from a distance, looking through Mount Vernon Place park. Dolice emphasizes the trees in the foreground while the church appears to be bathed in a mist.

Mount Vernon Place, one of the oldest surviving neighborhoods in Baltimore, Maryland is located just 10 blocks north of Baltimore's Inner Harbor. It has Mount Royal Avenue on the north, Mulberry Street on the south, Guilford Street on the east, and Howard Street on the west.

This urban area is significant for fine architecture and public squares, including the Washington Monument. The residential, commercial, and institutional buildings are among the most elaborate 19th- and early 20th- century structures in Baltimore. The area is dotted with ornate churches, art and historical museums, theaters, libraries, concert halls, and religious shrines.
