John George Brown
1831-1913, American

Business Neglected
1831-1913, American

Etching, image size 13 1/4 x 9 3/8 inches, c. 1884, cat: Tyler-10, plate signed and pencil signed. This is a very rich impression printed on Japan paper. John George Brown grew up in a poor family in London, becoming an apprentice at a glass factory at the age of 14. In 1853 he emigrated to Brooklyn and studied art at the National Academy of Design, becoming one of the most successful American artists of the 19th century. This etching is an excellent example of the slightly sentimental depictions of the working class and homeless children of New York City for which Brown was known.

This remarkable oil on canvas was painted by noted American marine artist Frank Vining Smith, c. 1930. The canvas measures 30 x 36 inches, and is signed in the lower right corner, in a very fine modern gilt frame. Frank Vining Smith was born and raised on Cape Cod Massachusetts and had a strong affinity with the ocean from a very young age. He studied at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston under Frank Benson, Philip Hale and Edward C. Tarbell, then at the Art Students League of New York.

Print

Hampton Court Palace
1857-1926, American

Created in 1906, this original etching by Joseph Pennell measures 6 1/2 x 11 inches. It is pencil signed on the lower margin, is #396 in the Wuerth catalogue and was probably done in an edition of 75. A publishers label is included with this image. Pennell did over 800 etching during his lifetime. His works were influenced by Meryon and Whistler, whose first biographer he became along with his wife. Much of his style and etching technique reflects Whistler's. His prints had many themes, including monuments, cities, factories and for one documentary series, the Panama Canal.
