Winslow Homer 1836-1910 American This is the original wood engraving, "Snap the Whip" after the painting by Winslow Homer. This image was from the 1873 printing in Harper's Weekly, this is a rare Double folio size which has the distinctive fold in the center of the image., and a ghost of the type setting from the back of the sheet, typical of these. This is probably the very best of the Wood engravings done of Homers work in the 19th century. The image measures 13 1/2X20 1/2 inches. A few light creases but overall very presentable as it now appears, archivally framed. Beautifully presented.
