Henry Farrer An important nineteenth century etcher and painter of landscapes and marine subjects, Henry Farrer immigrated to New York in 1863. His first original etchings were created five years later. These were views of old New York buildings commissioned by the publisher, E. B. Patterson. After that date, Henry Farrer concentrated mostly upon landscape and marine scenes which are esteemed for their sunrise or sunset effects. Most of his marine and landscape depictions were created around New York Bay or along the nearby East River. Henry Farrer was a full member of both the American Society of Painters in Water Colors and of the influential New York Etching Club.
