Leonard Craske (1882-1950) is hardly a household name today, but, the famous bronze sculpture near the waterfront in Gloucester, Massachusetts "They That Go Down to the Sea in Ships", by his hand, is probably one of the most widely recognized sculptures in America. The image of the brave fisherman in slickers, turning the ship's wheel and looking out to the horizon, is burned into many minds. Craske was born in London, England and moved to the United States, where he tried many different professions before turning to sculpture. This photogravure was pencil signed by Craske at lower right, and inscribed to a "Jack Burnes". It was printed by Suffolk Engraving Co., Cambridge, Mass. There are some mottled light browning areas, especially at upper right portion of the imagery, that I think are more visible in the photographs than upon actually viewing the piece. An interesting piece of maritime memorabilia. Measures 21 1/2" by 17 1/2" framed. Allow for a few reflections in the glass.
