1874 Winslow Homer Wood Engraving

"Camping Out In The Adirondack Mountains"


This rustic camping scene comes out of Winslow Homer's 1870 visit to Baker's Farm in the Adirondacks of New York.  Philip Beam in his book on Homer notes that this print was produced "near the end of his activity as an engraver" and anticipated "a number of subjects which would be prominent in his second career," including life in the wilderness.

Gordon Hendricks in "The Life and Work of Winslow Homer" pictures this engraving and identifies the mountain in the background as Beaver Mountain and the body of water "Mink Pond with its well-known dead tree." Below is a close-up of one of the campers who is also pictured in other engravings by Homer.

Below is the engraving matted to a standard frame size of 16 x 20 inches as it will come to you in a protective plastic sleeve. This would be a great present for the camper or outdoorsman in the family.
