  New Arrival
  Robert Swain Gifford   (1840-1905)

  NEAPOLITAN FISHING BOATS RETURNING HOME, 1884. Signed and dated in the plate. Wright 51. This large, highly dramatic image was not typical for Gifford, best known for his somber coastal views in Massachusetts. Perhaps the drama of life in Naples brought unusual animation to his mood while he traveled.
  Etching, 10 3/4 x 15 3/8 inches. SOLD.
