1873 Winslow Homer Wood Engraving

 "The Last Days of Harvest"

The wonderful late summer to early fall scene drawn by Winslow Homer in 1873 pictures two boys in the foreground shucking corn and in the background two men using pitchforks to load pumpkins on a horse drawn wagon.

Philip Beam in his book on Homer's periodical engravings notes that "There is a noticeable fondness for the activities of boys and girls who seem to play far more than they work" and says among Homer's examples of scenes of rural life which follow that pattern is this engraving. Gordon Hendricks in "The Life and Work of Winslow Homer" says the sketch for this work comes from Homer's visit to the White Mountains of New Hampshire in 1868.

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