Martin Lewis was arguably the premier American print maker of the first half of the 20th century best known for his images of New York City in the 1930s and 40s.. His works are held in virtually every significant American art museum. He was an acknowledged master of the intaglio techniques of printmaking, experimenting with multiple processes including etching, aquatint, engraving and drypoint where he captured the energy, bustle  and occasional solitude of all aspects of city life in New York.
