The firm of Currier & Ives created over 7,500 titles and created over a million lithographs in their 73 year run as a print shop. This 1873 print, in their popular bird’s eye view style, includes prominent landmarks of the day such as the Boston State House and the Old North Church. The painting depicts dozens of sailing ships in the harbour, emphasising Boston’s importance as a port at the time.
This view is quite the contrast to the tall and modern buildings of the Boston skyline today. The colours are subtle yet striking: the brick-red hues of the buildings, blue-grey of the harbour and flash of brilliant white from the boats’ sails are a truly versatile colour palette for any occasion.
