Painting

Incredible British Tonalist Landscape
1820-1845, Active, British

Oil on canvas, 16 x 24 inches, signed and dated 1851 lower right. Although initially known for his sporting scenes his work really excels in his atmospheric landscapes. The powerful light of the sunset reflecting off the dark, rugged landscape suggests qualities similar to Joseph M.W. Turner, the father of British Romanticism. The human in this scene is of small consequence compared to the majestic beauty surrounding her. Jones exhibited work at the British Institute, The Royal Academy and the Royal Society of British Artists.

Print

The Lookout: "All's Well"
1836-1910, American

A stunning original etching by American artist William Bicknell (1860-1947) after the painting by Winslow Homer. This is a very rare early pencil signed proof, before the remarque and lettering of the Hamburg-American Steamship Line. The plate size is 27 3/8 x 20 1/2 inches, published in 1906 by the John A. Lowell Bank Note Co., Boston, plate signed by Homer, pencil signed by Bicknell. This is a superb, richly inked impression on a heavy weight wove type paper with ample margins.
