  James Craig Nicoll   (1847-1918)

 
  FISHERMEN ANCHORED FOR THE NIGHT (Gloucester, MA harbor), 1886. Signed in the plate. This is a remarque proof, and the remarque, which is literally a "remark" on the subject, identifies the harbor as Gloucester harbor, one of the finest in New England and famed for its fishing fleet. Night scenes are very difficult to execute in a black and white medium, but Nicoll was one of a handful of printmakers who specialized in them. This large etching is an excellent impression in fine condition.
