School House, Tappan

by Weir, Robert W. James Smillie

Condition: See description

New York: New York Mirror, 1840. A rare steel engraving of the school house in Tappan, with the Hudson River visible in the distance, the "Tappan Zee". The image shows children leaving a rural school house. The original painting was by Robert W. Weir, a Hudson River School artist and instructor at West Point. It was engraved on steel by James Smillie, a noted bank note engraver, whose engravings are especially fine. Printed by J. Neale at Illman & Pilbrows. Image & caption 6 3/4 x 6 1/4" on paper with wide margins. With later hand color. The New York Mirror issued these prints with their literary newspaper, and they are often by Weir and extremely attractive.
