Chromo-lithograph
By Charles Richard Parsons (1844-1918) and Lyman Wetmore Atwater (1835-1891)
Publisher: Currier  & Ives
Published: New York, 1872

An extraordinary print. We are looking at the The Battery, in its 25 acres park at the tip of Manhattan, letting our eyes  sway across  the wide panorama of Brooklyn and Staten Island. Life is busy, people, coaches, horse trams everywhere in Battery Park, and busy is New York Harbor with sail ships, sailboats and steamers. The Narrows open to the Atlantic with a fleet of ships.

Nathaniel Currier established a lithographic company in New York 1835. Soon he began to depict what America was all about between the middle and the end of the 19th century. In 1857 he merged his company with the lithographic company of James Merritt Ives. From then on their American artwork became know and collectible as „Currier & Ives“. Their firm existed until 1907.

The Port of New York is one of their spectacular pieces of Art. It is easy to see why that is so.

Condition: The well preserved chromo-lithograph was trimmed by ca. two centimeters on the left, ca. 2 cm on the right and ca. 2 cm on top. A tear on the left (ca. 18 cm) was repaired. Lower margin around title and text had some frail spots, which were repaired. The entire lithograph has been mounted on strong paper..
The mentioned shortcomings are hardly seen from the front. Minimal other traces of use and age.

Image including title: 54 x 80,4 cm (ca. 21.3 x 31.7“)
