Joseph Margulies (1896 - 1984)

Joseph Margulies was active/lived in New York. Joseph Margulies was known for portrait, sea and landscape paintings and etchings.

This is a hand-colored etching/aquatint and looks like it is from a series of paintings that he did of an area of Menton, France in the 1930's.

The signature with the word imp after means that this is an etching/print.The edges of the image being so crisp also prove it was printed form a printing/etching plate. This piece has a current value of $150.00 retail.

Some sites that I recommend for selling are,,, Ebay and
You can also go to or and search their directory for an auction house near you and consign to them.

To finish, I will need you to click the five stars at the top of your screen and hit submit, thanks!
