Description

Joseph Raphael, a native of San Francisco, spent much of his professional life in Europe. His subject in this etching is the crowded gallery of an auction room in Brussels. The room is packed with men in the moments before the auction, and the Baroque wall paintings and sculpture, which appear to be coming to life, further add to the action in the scene and intensify the suffocatingly close atmosphere.
