Ambrose Hyppolyte Louis Garneray (1783 - 1857, France) produced a remarkable series of images of major ports of Europe and the United States beginning in the 1820s. He was commissioned by Louis XVIII of France to produce paintings of naval scenes. The aquatint etching we offer for sale is a member of the port series, most likely a second state production published c. 1835. It was probably originally published around 1820 or so. Garneray has depicted a scene of New Orleans with a steam and sail powered paddle boat which gives the image an early date.
The print is matted and gold framed and visually in excellent condition. We have not examined the print out of frame.
