Shadows on the Ramp. 1927. Drypoint and sand ground. McCarron 64. 9 x 10 1/2 (sheet 12 3/8 x 14). Edition 75 recorded impressions. A rich, tonal impression with drypoint burr, printed on cream wove paper. Signed in pencil. Housed in a striking French mat and a 19 1/8 x 21 3/8-inch black wood modernist frame. $15,000.
This drypoint was executed the same year as Lewis's first one-man exhibition in New York, at Kennedy & Company.
According to McCarron, "The composition of Shadows on the Ramp is particularly well organized. The group of four figures, enlivened by the placement of heads and legs, is placed against the strong angular shapes of the buildings and their shadows. Lights burning in carefully chosen windows provide additional interest." (page 124).
