  Stephen Parrish   (1846-1938)

 
  FISHERMEN'S HOUSES, CAPE ANN, 1881. Schneider 49. Signed in pencil. This large etching was Parrish's most popular, and depicts all the elements that made him a leading printmaker of the period. Printed on vellum, a true animal skin, it displays the typical waviness of that printing surface, with some slight marginal foxing. It has been professionally conserved.. The resulting image is utterly subtle and glowing. Vellum was highly prized in the late 19th century: the images on vellum were made in very small editions and were much more expensive than prints on more standard surfaces.
