About the Item

Old Colony Statehouse, Newport, Rhode Island. c. 1931-1933. Etching. Hausberg 187. iii. 7 7/8 x 6 (sheet 12 1/2 x 9 1/4). Printed on the full sheet of cream wove paper with deckle edges. Unsigned. Housed in a 20 x 16-inch mat, suitable for framing. Addams was born near Philadelphia, and s tudied art first in the United States before leaving for continued studies in Europe. He is known to have both visited and worked in Belgium, Holland, Spain, France, Italy and, most particularly, England. He studied with Whistler in Paris in 1899. There he met, and later married, another Whistler student, Inez Eleanor Bate. Clifford Addams first exhibited his art in Paris, in 1901, and in London, in 1904. Whistler remained friendly with the couple until his death. She remained in London, and Addams settled in New York after World War I. He exhibited in New York, Boston, Philadelphia and Chicago. He was also a full member of the Chicago Society of Etchers, the Philadelphia Society of Etchers and the Society of American Etchers. Later he became president of the Philadelphia Society of Etchers .s Adams, in fact, maintained working studios in both London and New York City throughout the first three decades of the twentieth century. Most of Clifford Addams's fine etchings and engravings were created between 1901 and 1925. Many depict street scenes in and around London. Addams appears to have printed most of his art himself and mainly in very small editions. The largest recorded edition is 75 impressions, while others were often printed in impressions of ten or less. Today his art is included in such major collections as the Art Institute of Chicago, The Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, The Library of Congress, The Smithsonian Institute and the National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC
