  Winslow Homer   (1836-1910)

 
  THE DRIVE IN CENTRAL PARK, NEW YORK, SEPTEMBER, 1860. Beam 73 (he gives the wrong size). Signed "W Homer" in the lower right corner of the block. Double page center-fold spread, Harper's Weekly, Sept. 15, 1860. Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux designed Central Park, and work began in 1857. This view of the 3-year-old park, before the trees and plantings matured, looks rather barren, but even then people flocked delightedly to their new park. Aside from slight darkening at the fold line, in very good condition.
