Ink on paper drawing of the narrow streets of an old town likely in eastern Massachusetts, possibly Marblehead, two women chatting casually, the work signed by the artist at lower right and monogrammed and dated in Roman numerals 1896 at left, by the noted American artist and illustrator EDMUND HENRY GARRETT (1853-1929). Garrett was born in Albany, New York at mid century, and died near Boston at the end of the 1920's. His art career appears to have started slowly, with little art education prior to his trip to Europe in the late 1870's with his friend Childe Hassam. While in Europe he received training at the Academie Julian in Paris. Once back in the Boston area he launched what was to become a successful career in illustration for a number of publications, and his paintings were widely exhibited. Garrett's works generally deal with New England subject matter, though a number of works from Europe and Bermuda are known. This drawing, found in Maine, was likely an illustration for one of these early publications. Condition is excellent. Measurements are 13 1/2" by 13 1/2", and 18 1/2" by 18 1/2" as framed.
