  William St. John Harper   (1851-1910)

 
  REVERY, 1888. Signed in pencil. A remarque proof in mint condition on Imperial Japan paper. Since Harper lived in East Hampton for many years, this is probably his wife near the shore. The languid pose of an elegant woman daydreaming over a book is a typical 1880s female representation. Harper studied at the NAD with Chase and Shirlaw, and also in Paris. He was president of the Art Students' League in 1881, and exhibited with the NY Etching Club.
