The Inner Harbor- Gloucester, by Stephen Parrish, Amer., (1846-1938)
Regular price $400
Etching, 1883, S. 79, only state, 9-1/2 x 13-3/8, signed & dated in the plate lower left, the margins trimmed but adequate, on thick cream laid paper. A stunning view of Gloucester's harbor in the late 19th century; the plate tone dramatically wiped to selectively capture sunlight on the sails and buildings in fore & middle ground, leaving those in the distance at left in shadow.
