Bill Murphy hand-colored print Night Construction, South Ferry

Description: Realist printmaker and painter Bill Murphy possesses a talent for capturing the mystery and beauty of urban scenes at nighttime. This dramatic cityscape image entitled "Night Construction, South Ferry" shows a work site at night--the ferry terminal in lower Manhattan, a view familiar to the artist who lives on Staten Island.

This artwork is produced in an edition of 10 etchings with drypoint. Because the artist then hand-colors the etching with watercolor, it is termed a "variable edition print". Since each one is unique, the hand-colored prints are signficantly more valuable than a more standard editioned print.

To learn more about this contemporary artist who is represented in major collections including British Museum (UK), New York Public Library, New York Historical Society and Westinghouse Corp., visit Bill Murphy's Staten Island studio. View more Bill Murphy artworks.
