Winslow Homer “A VOICE FROM THE CLIFFS” Etching
A VOICE FROM THE CLIFFS. Etched by James David Smillie and plate signed by both Homer and Smillie on laid paper, in mint condition.
Smillie made this etching directly from the original watercolor, and Homer signed about ten proofs as indication of his approval of the etching.
Homer later made his own etching of this subject. “In 1886, with Homer’s blessing, James D. Smillie made a skillful reproductive etching of the watercolor for use as a plate in S.R. Koehler’s American Art.”
