  Henry Farrer   (1843-1903)

 
  THE WASHERWOMAN, 1877. Signed in the plate, on Japan paper. (Also available on laid paper.) This print, done by Farrer from his pencil drawing, was made early in his etching career when many American artists were heavily influenced by the Barbizon tradition. This American washerwoman (probably in Brooklyn) was inspired by images of French peasants of the period.
