  Thomas Waterman Wood   (1823-1903)

 
  HIS OWN DOCTOR, 1883. Signed and dated in the plate. This is a dignified depiction of an impoverished but resilient African-American elder. After the Civil War, Wood became a leading genre painter . He took a particular interest in American "types," which included respectful genre portraits of blacks. His work in paintings, watercolors, and etchings is best seen at the Wood Art Gallery in Montpelier, Vermont. See Thomas Waterman Wood, exh. cat. and Paul Worman, Catalogue Raisonné, both for the Wood Art Gallery.l This is a brilliant impression in mint condition.
