Notes

*Title: The title "St. Michael's in Brooklyn" derives from the Associated American Artists (AAA) label. Generally, prints published by AAA were signed (l.r.) in pencil and undated; the title appeared only on the accompanying label.

Setting: This church is located at 352 42nd St. Brooklyn, described by the artist as "an early Dutch Gothic red brick church." (Fiene Complete Guide 50)

Related Painting(s): "St. Michael's in Brooklyn No.1" (1943) illustrated in Art Digest May 1, 1943; exhibited Associated American Artists, Feb.-Mar 43. in their "Winter Works" exhibition. The image is very similar to that of the lithograph. A Fiene painting with the title "St. Michaels's In Brooklyn" was purchased in 1943 by the film director Ernst Lubitsch.
