[BALTIMORE] LANE, FITZ HENRY (after). View of Baltimore, from Federal Hill.
New York: A. Conant, 1850. Hand-colored lithograph after Fitz Henry Lane, lithographed by Sarony & Major. 21 1/4 x 29 inches (54 x 74 cm); framed. Evenly toned, a few spots, one small visible short tear in lower margin, not examined out of frame.
This uncommon lithograph after Lane's 1850 painting shows a northwest view of the oldest part of Baltimore. Of note here is the intermingling of white and black people on this grassy hill as well as the ships in the growing port including at least one so-called Baltimore Clipper. We trace no copies of this view at auction. Repps, Views and Viewmakers of Urban America: Lithographs of Towns and Cities, 1285.
