Winslow Homer etching "The Lookout -- All's Well"
Medium: etching (etched by William Bicknell after Winslow Homer's 1896 painting). Although there is no inscription, it is presumed to have been published in 1906 by the John A. Lowell Bank Note Co., Boston, and issued for the Hamburg-American Line (there is a vignette of one of their passenger steamships in the margin at the bottom left). Image size: 23 1/2 x 17 1/2 inches (595 x 443mm) printed on heavy wove paper. Signed in the plate (not by hand).
Condition: The margins have been somewhat trimmed (not affecting the etching but slightly cropping the steamship vignette along the bottom edge). There is small skinned spot at the top right corner of the composition, and a pink erasure mark in the margin at the bottom right with skinning to the surface of the paper.
A rich, dark impression of this magnificent etching. A lucky find!
