This is a beautiful summer landscape by White Mountain artist Clinton Loveridge, oil on canvas, 22 x 36 inches, 1884, signed and dated in the lower left corner, with a Windsor Newton stamp on the back of the canvas, framed. Known for his landscapes and pastoral scenes, Loveridge painted in New York and the White Mountains of New Hampshire and exhibited his work frequently at the Brooklyn Art Association and the Nation Academy of Design.
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.
