  Stephen Parrish   (1846-1938)

 
  THE HARBOR OF CANNES, 1886. Schneider 116. Signed in pencil, and annotated "To Mr. Henry E. F. Voigt--with compliments of Stephen Parrish." Kimmel & Voigt were the splendid printers of etchings in NYC; without them the etching revival could not have succeeded. Also signed, titled, dated, and numbered in the plate. Parrish traveled in Europe from 1884 to 1886, and this etching was one of the few he actually completed there. He found the harbor of Cannes very beautiful but, he wrote, the city was too "swell and expensive" for them so the family stayed in St. Raphael, near Cannes, "a place frequented more by artists." A rich impression on fine Japan paper in excellent condition.
