Boston, From City Point near Sea Street
New York: Henry I. Megarey, 1853. A SPECTACULAR VIEW OF THE BOSTON SHORELINE DURING THE MID-NINETEENTH CENTURY Colored aquatint Image size: approx. 19 3/5" x 25 1/10" Framed size: 31" x 36 3/5" ca. 1853-1856 Literature: Deák, Picturing America, 408 W.J. Bennett's exquisitely colored aquatint provides the viewer with a stunning view of Boston's harbor. Indeed, this work possesses the three qualities that define Bennett's best aquatints: clarity, sparkle, and luminosity. The lush clouds and azure sky are particularly well rendered. In addition, Bennett expertly organizes all of the work's compositional elements. The schooner's sail supplies the image with a strong left border, while the point of the schooner's anchor returns the viewer's gaze back in the direction of the city of Boston. Manned rowboats also offer the viewer a sense of scale. . Book.
