Gift of J. L. G. Ferris, 1927
Brothers-in-law Moran and Ferris both were active in the etching revival of the 1880s.
Thomas Moran and his wife, etcher Mary Nimmo Moran, often worked at their
summer home and studio in East Hampton, Long Island. Moran gave this print, one of
his largest plates, to the Ferris family as a Christmas gift in 1885.
