More About this Item


Description: View du New York prise du Weahawk (A View of New York, taken from Veahawk). after Ambroise Louis Garneray (1783-1857). Hand-colored engraving. New York, Bailly Ward & Co. 17 1/2 x 21 1/4 inches sheet, 27 1/2 x 31 1/2 inches framed.The view was apparently first issued in Paris as part of Garneray?s very scarce and impressive color plate portfolio Vues des C?tes de France. There seems to be some confusion over the date of publication of the print, Stokes says 1834, based upon the appearance of the dome on the Merchants? Exchange, completed in 1827 but destroyed by fire in late 1835. Further, there is no trace of the tower of the Presbyterian Church on Wall Street, which was destroyed by fire in September 1834, but rebuilt in 1835.
Artist or Maker: Ambroise Louis Garneray
Literature: Hand-colored engraving on paper
