1873 Winslow Homer Wood Engraving

 "Gloucester Harbor"

A lazy summer day with two rowboats chock full of boys and many sailing vessels in Gloucester harbor in 1873 is the subject of this superb Winslow Homer engraving.

Philip Beam in his book on Homer's wood engravings notes that,

an accent on carefree youth had always been prominent in Homer's work and he brought it to a climax in the mid-seventies with his "children's series." The best known of these are also masterpieces of his work in the engraving field:..Gloucester Harbor..."

The engraving is in great condition with full margins and you can see it below as it will come to you matted to 16 x 20 inches and enclosed in a protective plastic sleeve.

This one is great for the sailor in the family or anyone who appreciates the lazy days of summer by the sea and the artistry of Winslow Homer.
