Scope and Contents

The 82 drypoints by Mortimer Borne in this collection were created between 1927 and 1949. The images, many of them colored, primarily depict Manhattan streets, skylines, harbors, churches, parks (especially Central Park), and elevated trains; several of these are night scenes. There are also views of Brooklyn, Sheepshead Bay, Coney Island, Spuyten Duyvil, and Manhattan as seen from Weehawken, New Jersey, and from the George Washington Bridge. A 1940 etching depicts the World's Fair Grounds at night.


Prints are organized alphabetically by titles supplied by the artist. Titles have been transcribed from each print.
