Charles Mielatz, American, 1864-1919, "Dewey Triumphal Arch," This elegant and detailed etching by Charles Mielatz measures 14 3/4 x 10 7/8 inches. Created in 1899 in NYC it depicts the American Naval Arch on the corner of 5th Avenue and 23rd Street. It is plate signed and dated and also pencil signed. On the lower margin is a pencil sketch of a US Navy battleship. A publishers identification mark is located on the back of this framed piece. Born in Germany and arriving in the US as a young boy, Mielatz went on to study at the Chicago School of Design. His first prints were of the New England landscape but after visiting NYC the urban landscape became his subject of choice. He took a great deal of time with his craft and was a early pioneer of the multi-plate color process. Mielatz was a member of the New York Etching Club, the Brooklyn Society of Etchers and was an associate member of the National Academy of Design.
