Painting

Harbor Nocturne

This is an atmospheric moonlit scene of a ship coming in to harbor, painted in oil on Academy Board and measuring 15 1/8 x 11 inches. It is obscurely signed "H. G. Lask..?" in the lower right corner; although we have not been able to determine the identity of the artist, this painting is certainly done by a skilled hand, very much in the style of James Gale Tyler. A very fine 19th century painting in an ornate period gilt frame.

Print

Soho Alley
1876-1942

Etching and drypoint, image size 4 7/8 x 13 1/8 inches, 1912, printed on cream wove paper. Addams was born in New Jersey and attended the Drexel Institute there. He won a Philadelphia Academy Cresson Traveling Scholarship and entered Whistler’s Academy in Paris in 1899. In the 1900′s, London’s working class Italian Soho district was the subject of many artists of the day including Whistler's shop-front prints such as T.A. Nash’s Fruit Shop. The horizontal format and the density of the etching work is comparable to many of Whistler Amsterdam prints.
