Three original Watercolor Sepia Drawings by Baltimore Artist and photographer, ca. 1870s

Way, G.B.



Ca. 1880


Approximately 9 x 5”, 6.5 x 4” and 3.25 x 4.25”.  All pasted to thin backing paper and signed by the artist in pencil on the backing, with one also signed in the image. 

A tropical island scene, a bucolic landscape, and a “fairy” fantasy.

In June, we sold an original drawing by artist Andrew J.H.Way, an early depiction of grapes, which would later become the tradedmark of his popular paintints. These drawings are by his son, Baltimore artist George Brevitt Way (b. 1854), who was also an “artistic” photographer, exhibiting many of his photos – landscapes, buildings, interiors, flowers -  in New York in the 1890s.
