Marchande Endormie [Market Woman, Asleep] 1923 John W. Winkler 188 x 113 mm Gift of Carol Johnson and John Aronovici 1111.1.5564 (Click to enlarge)
A private moment captured by master etcher Winkler, who stood in a Paris street sketching straight onto the printing plate with a needle.
In a quirky game of cataloging “telephone,” our copy of this print was labeled as “Marchande Endorme,” a simple typographical error. The record went into our database, however, as “Marchande Enorme,” which seems an unwarranted editorial comment. The record has now been corrected.
