  Henry Farrer   (1843-1903)

 
  THE TOW, 1881. Signed and dated in the plate. There is a water color of this subject titled SUNSET, GOWANUS BAY, NEW YORK, 32 x 40 inches, which was exhibited in 1881at the NAD and appeared in the past decade on the NYC art market. There is also a small version which was published in the 1882 NY Etching Club catalog, the same year in which this large version was shown. Clearly Farrer loved this image of a tug boat, a paddle wheeler, and a sailboat: the drama of shipping in NY harbor is continually fascinating. (He later used the same title for an 1886 etching, which you can see in the previous entry.) This one is a beautifully inked impression in fine condition.
