Charles Adams Platt, American, 1861-1933, "Quay at Honfleur". This is a very fine original etching in sepia ink by American artist C. A. Platt. The image size is 16 5/8 x 12 3/4 inches, 1888, signed and dated in the plate, pencil signed, with a blindstamp from the Society of American Etchers. A very rich impression on a heavy weight wove type paper with ample margins. C. A. Platt was born in New York and studied art at the National Academy of Design, the Art Students League and the Academie Julian. He was a very successful painter and etcher, known for his delicately rendered New England landscapes and was also a very talented architect. He was close friends with fellow New England etcher Stephen Parrish and was a member of Saint-Gaudens' Cornish Art Colony.
