Description
Winkler did more than one version of this scene, now considered one of his most well known from his time in San Francisco's Chinatown. The first was created in 1917 (illustrated on page 64 of Millman & Bohn's "Master of Line: John W. Winkler, an American Master") and the final version, printed in the opposite direction of the 1917 version and now including more detail, was printed in Paris in 1923 in an edition of 85 impressions. This is one of those impressions, and is accompanied by its plate, which features an additional etching on the verso. The verso image is "Facades", which he created circa 1920/'21 but did not publish until the early 1950s (ref.: M & B, p. 102, 103). His etched cursive "W" is in the verso image, lower left (right when printed).
