  Stephen Parrish   (1846-1938)

 
  GLOUCESTER FERRY, 1881. Schneider 47. Signed in pencil. This large version of the subject is extremely rare---it's the only one I've had in 25 years. There was a later edition printed on a heavy paper, but this one is on the very thin Japan paper used for the early printing. It has been professionally mounted on Japanese mulberry paper. Parrish made dozens of Cape Ann subjects, all reflecting his love of the region. No examples of the steep-roofed net drying building at the center have survived in Gloucester. A rich impression in very good condition.
