  (After) Winslow Homer   (1836-1910)

 
  A VOICE FROM THE CLIFFS, 1886. Etched and signed in pencil by James David Smillie. On Japan paper, in mint condition. Smillie made this etching directly from the original watercolor, and Homer signed about ten proofs as indication of his approval of the etching. Homer later made his own etching of tis subject. David Tatham, Winslow Homer in the 1880s, Everson Museum, Syracuse, 1984, p. 21, wrote: "In 1886, with Homer's blessing, James D. Smillie made a skillful reproductive etching of the watercolor for use as a plate in S.R. Koehler's American Art." For more information, see Witthoft's catalogue raisonné, #42.
