  Thomas Waterman Wood (after)    (1823-1903)

  UNCLE NED AND I, ca. 1882, after a painting by Wood. Signed in pencil by Wood, the painter, and John Angel James Wilcox (1835-ca. 1908), the etcher. This is a proof before letters, on chine collé, published by Klackner. After the Civil War, Wood became one of the leading genre painters in America. This is a touching portrait of a kindly older African-American man and his relationship with the Caucasian child who loves and trusts him. A fine impression in good condition.
  Etching and engraving: plate, 29 7/8 x 19 3/4; image, 24 3/4 x 16 5/8 inches. SOLD.
