Edmund Henry Garrett A well known nineteenth century American painter, etcher and illustrator, Edmund Henry Garrett studied art at the Academie Julien in Paris under Jean Paul Laurens, Boulanger and Lefebvre. After residing in France for a period of about five years he returned to America and established a successful studio in Boston. During the last two decades of the nineteenth century, Edmund Garrett’s paintings and etchings were widely exhibited throughout the United States and in France at the Paris Salon.
E. H. Garrett’s first original prints were in the medium of wood engraving. Under the advice of Robert Swain Gifford (1840—1905), he created his first etching in 1879. Specializing in both architectural views and landscapes, Garrett’s ensuing etchings dealt mainly with scenes of the areas around Boston, Concord and Cape Cod. The Old Manse dates from 1879 and was in fact the second etching Edmund Henry Garrett created. Yet it exhibits all the fine details and tonal values which mark his best works of art.
