A late traveler makes her way to the subway

October 20, 2010

A woman descends the subway stairs in “Late Traveler,” a 1949 drypoint etching by Martin Lewis.

It’s noirish and mysterious. I think we’ve all been this woman at some point or another, making our way through a quiet, lonely city in the dark.

“Late Traveler” is part of the collection at the Detroit Institute of Arts. View a close-up of the etching here.
