Charles Adams Platt, American, 1861-1933, "Interior of Fish Houses". A remarkable original etching by American artist and architect C. A. Platt, image size 4 7/8 x 7 3/4 inches, 1881, cat: Rice- 22, plate signed and dated, pencil signed. Platt was born in New York and studied art at the National Academy of Design, the Art Students League and the Academie Julian. He was a very successful painter and etcher, known for his delicately rendered New England landscapes and harbor scenes. He was also a talented architect and a member of the Saint-Gaudens Art Colony in Cornish, NH. This image is most likely set in the fishing town of Gloucester, MA, which Platt depicts in an interesting Whistleresque composition.
