About this Item: Appleton. 1869., 1869. Wood engraving, fold out Art Supplement to Appletons' Journal 1869, 13 x 19 1/2 inches on sheet size 15 1/2 x 21 inches. Paper loss to lower left corner (just affecting very edge of image), multiple folds as issued, upper horizontal fold line has been backed with Japanese paper, a few short edge tears at lower edge; overall good, clean condition. The prominent late 19th century American artist Winslow Homer worked as an illustrator for Harper's Weekly and other illustrated journals from the 1850s to the mid 1870s, his designs being rendered as wood-engravings. Homer's superior artistic abilities were recognised in this elaborate foldout "art supplement" about which the magazine wrote: Mr. Winslow us a picture of the ease and pleasurable abandon which accompany life at Long Branch. On the beach, more than anywhere else in the world, society throws aside its dignity. Men and women make children of themselves. Those in the water give themselves up to sport, frolicking with each other and with the waves, thoughtless of fashion and its formalities. . . . Our artist suggests an old poetic thought in the letters drawn [the artist's initials], by a young girl, in the sand." This lovely image is in the American Art collection of the Brooklyn Museum.
