1873 Winslow Homer Wood Engraving


Winslow Homer's preoccupation with the sea led him to depict the tragedies of the sea as shown by this engraving of an Old Salt discovering the body of a young girl thrown up by the sea as a result of the wreck of the steamer Atlantic, a famous seafaring disaster of 1873 in which 545 out of 957 passengers were lost off the coast of Nova Scotia. The Atlantic was ship of the "White Star" Line running between Liverpool and New York.

Below is a close-up of the print showing the title and the fair maiden grasping a rope.

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.
