  John Mackie Falconer   (1820-1903)

 
  NEGRO HUTS IN NO. CAROLINA, 1880. Signed in the plate. Although primarily a Long Island landscapist, Falconer's travels in the Deep South inspired several poignant genre etchings of Black life. He especially loved the look of antiquated houses in his landscapes. See: Linda S. Ferber, "Our Mr. John M. Falconer," Brooklyn Before the Bridge, exh. cat., Brooklyn Museum, 1982. She notes that "Falconer was a central figure in the cultural life of nineteenth-century Brooklyn" and that "he counted among his good friends such eminent American artists as Thomas Cole, Asher B. Durand" and others.
