Francis Augustus Silva - Beer's Cottage, Far Rockaway, Long Island

Francis Augustus Silva - Beer's Cottage, Far Rockaway, Long Island
Oil on canvas, circa 1883. 610x1115 mm; 24x44 inches. Signed in oil, lower left recto. Silva (1835-1886) was born and trained in New York. He was raised at 125 East Broadway, close to the bustling East River docks. This work depicts a scene in Far Rockaway, Queens, near Hog Island, where city dwellers would escape for summer beach outings. The boat slip is decorated with the flags of Holland, Ireland, France and England, among the American flags, indicating that many beachgoers were recent immigrants. Powerful hurricanes in 1893 and 1903 destroyed the beach and the structures along the shoreline leaving open water in Hempstead Bay, as it remains today.
