  Stephen Parrish   (1846-1938)

 
  A GALE AT FECAMP, NORMANDIE, 1886. Schneider 117, i/ii. Signed in pencil. There is no other print in the Etching Revival that is comparable to this spectacular etching with its surround of remarques. Parrish loved the cold, exciting weather that horrifies some people but he was convinced that it was good for the health. This print was shown in autumn 1888 at the first exhibition of the Society of American Etchers. This unusual etching received good reviews and much attention. Printed on simili Japan paper and in fine condition. See below for a detail of the remarques.
