  Henry Farrer   (1843-1903)

 
  THE TOW, 1886. (New York harbor.) Signed in the plate. On Japan paper. Farrer was born in England, but emigrated at the age of 19, and there is no record of his ever having returned to Europe. This quintessential American artist chose northeastern landscapes and marine views, usually at sunrise or twilight, as his favored subject matter. This etching is a paradigm of Farrer's wonderful images of New York harbor.
