Charles Mielatz, American, 1864-1919, "The Old Watermill". This is a luminous original etching of a rural watermill at twilight by American artist Charles Mielatz. The image size is 19 3/4 x 11 3/4 inches, published in 1886 by Fishel, Adler & Schwartz, remarque in the lower margin, pencil signed. Mielatz was born in Germany but came to the United States as a young boy, studying at the Chicago School of Design, although much of his etching technique was self taught. Mielatz was a member of New York Etching Club and was one of the first etchers elected to the National Academy of Design, where he was also the chief instructor of etching for many years. This is one of Mielatz's early etchings, which like most of his early work is done in the American painter-etcher style with a tonalist inspired sense of fading light.
