Wisdom on Wednesdays—Money will not defend you

“Money will feed you
But will not defend you.”  (1936)


Old Houses, West St., 1916, dry-point etching
In this early work, Schmitt neglected to traced the name on the sign on the building on the left (“Otto Greenwald”) in reverse on the etching plate, so that it was printed in reverse when the etching was printed on paper. These buildings in the 400 block of West Street in New York City were demolished in 1929 for the construction of the West Side Highway.
