Rain on Murray Hill. 1928. Drypoint. McCarron 75. 7 13/16 x 11 3/4 (sheet 10 7/8 x 16 5/16). Edition 110 recorded impressions. Illustrated: Fine Prints of the Year, 1926. An especially rich impression with drypoint burr and plate tone, printed in green/black ink on cream wove paper. Signed in pencil. $26,000.

According to McCarron, "The Thirty-fourth Street Armory at Park Avenue, now demolished, is shown in the print at right. It was a few blocks from Lewis's studio at 145 East Thirty-fourth street. The buildings at left can also be seen in Quarter of Nine, Saturday's Children (No. 78) of 1929, and Break in the Thunderstorm (No. 86) of 1930. Lewis printed some impressions of Rain on Murray Hill in green ink that conveys a particularly strong impression of dampness."
