About

The Arthur Williams Estate. c. 1916. Etching and drypoint. 4 3/4 x 9 (sheet 8 x 10 7/8). A rich impression printed on dark cream wove paper. Water stain in the lower margin, well outside the image. Signed and annotated 'A Williams Home N. York Edison Co' in pencil. Housed in a 16 x 20-inch archival mat, suitable for framing. Arthur Williams, general commercial manager of the Edison Company, built the house c. 1916. It is near Brook Corners, Glenwood Landing, Roslyn Harbor, Long Island, New York. Housed in an archival mat. Printmaker Earl Horter, born in 1881 in Germantown, Pennsylvania, was known for his realistic etchings and aquatints of urban scenes, though he was also an illustrator and painter. As a teenager, he engraved stock certificates. He was essentially self-taught, though he did take an etching class when he moved to New York City in 1903 to work for an advertising agency. Horter had a one-man show in 1916 in New York City at the Frederick Keppel and Company gallery. He was given the exhibition by Carl Zigrosser, later the first Curator of Prints and Drawings at the Museum of Modern Art. Horter was back in Philadelphia in 1917, where he would remain until his death in 1940. He worked there as art director for the N. W. Ayer advertising firm from 1917-1923. Horter was a member of the Society of Illustrators. He exhibited at the Pan American Exposition in 1915 in San Francisco, California; the Art Institute of Chicago, Illinois; and the Philadelphia Print Club's National Exhibition of Prints; as well as Corcoran Gallery biennials from 1935 to 1939, in Washington, D.C. Horter is listed in "Mantle Fielding's Dictionary of American Artists"; "Who Was Who in American Art"; and Mallett's "Index of Artists".
