c1896 GIRL Lady Ocean Surf Beach Wave Print Walter Granville Smith A Popular Wave Bathing Costume Hat
Depicted are four Victorian ladies in period bathing costumes frolicking in the surf. What I love about this print is that you can actually see their costuming through the wave. It is just amazing how much clothing they would wear, complete with a belt and hats! The color hues are unfaded and just gorgeous. It is printed on a heavy pebbly stock, and signed lower right. Although undated, this print was printed two ways, one with the date of 1896 and the other undated. This one came from old stock, and was interfiled with others from The Truth Magazine for 1897, so it most likely dates to that period. This print is a large size and is just perfect for those of you who live at the ocean.
A little tidbit about the artist:
Walter Granville-Smith was born in 1830, and died in 1938. He was an American painter and illustrator. He is best known for his oil paintings and watercolors of seascapes, landscapes and genre scenes. He illustrated many cover images for The Truth Magazine.
The print is housed in a quarter-sawn oak frame with lovely minial ray grain, and burnished brass corner embellishments. Both frame and print are in VG+ condition. Overall size with the frame is aprox 14.5 x 21 inches. Please note that the closeups look a bit grainy, due to the pebbly stock paper, but in reality, do not display that way at all.
