Engraving with hand coloring, 4 3/4" by 8 3/4" inside the mat, 9 3/4" by 12 3/4" in interesting old framing, the work trimmed on all sides, including the title "The Beverley Shore", after the important nineteenth century American artist JOHN FREDERICK KENSETT (1816-1872). Kensett is famed for his luminist technique and the almost spiritual stillness of some of his coastal landscape paintings, which have exceeded one million dollars at major auctions. He worked in his father's engraving shop in Connecticut before traveling to Paris for art training and exposure to the old masters. A painting companion of John William Casilear and Asher B. Durand of the Hudson River School, he went on in a short lifetime to excel in painting New England landscapes, whether in the White Mountains, or, in coastal regions of Massachusetts. This print is after his painting of 1863, of the rocky Beverly shore, just north of Boston. Other than the trimming, and a possible faint diagonal discoloration at top right, the print is clean and the hand coloring well above average. The Luminism of the artist's technique is actually preserved, in this print.
