1873 Winslow Homer Wood Engraving


Winslow Homer in this wonderful scene pictures ship building of both the serious kind with a large boat under construction through the efforts of 16 men and the playful kind with two boys erecting their model sailing craft.

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:..Ship-Building, Gloucester Harbor..."

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.
