  A HAMPTONS WINDMILL
 
 
  Back    
  Mary Nimmo Moran   (1842-1899)

 
  SUMMER, SUFFOLK COUNTY, NY, 1884. Klackner 30A. Signed in the plate "M.N.M." This is the small version (of her larger etching) commissioned by the NY Etching Club for inclusion in their 1884 exhibition catalog. Those commissions were an honor, since only eight etchings were included in each of the annual catalogues. Moran made numerous etchings of the scenery of her summer home landscape, and they often included the windmills then so typical of the eastern end of Long Island. Only a few windmills have survived, and they are much treasurred. Printed in warm black ink, and in very good condition.
 
 
  Etching, 6 x 4 inches. $325.
