This lovely drypoint of the Saugus Ironworks measures 6 7/8 x 10 7/8 inches. It is pencil signed, titled and numbered. Created in 1958, this scene is near Lynn, Massachusetts, on the banks of the Saugus River, where iron was first produced in commercial quantities in 1646. After being restored, the Saugus Ironworks is now a National Hictoric Site and a unit of the National Park System of the United States. Chamberlain became well known for his carefully rendered etchings and drypoints of both European and American buildings and cityscapes as well as very detailed landscapes.
