DESCRIPTION:  Reference: Morse 278, seventh state (of 7), from the edition of 52 impressions, all printed by Charles White. In very good condition, with barely visible light toning, printed on a cream laid paper with margins (small loss upper left margin edge), archival mounting.

A fine rich atmospheric impression, printed with a plate tone overall which heightens the sense that this is a night scene.

Although Sloan writes "100 proofs" in the lower left margin, as he customarily did, the total printing size of the edition was half that - 52.

Sloan wrote of this print: "All Greenwich Villagers know Romany Marye, who has acted the part of hostess, philosopher, and friend in her series of quiet little restaurants for the past thiry-five years. The etching shows her chatting in her deep comfortable voice to Dolly and myself." Sloan is depicted at the lower right, with the pipe; his wife Dolly is at the lower left.
