A Glimpse of the Homestead
Many Currier & Ives prints can be classified as genre prints or everyday scenes of American life in the mid-nineteenth century. The company frequently produced bucolic imagery at a time when the country was swiftly moving into the Industrial Age. A Glimpse of the Homestead is an example of this phenomenon. This tranquil farm setting depicts horses, ducks and chickens enjoying a summer day while several cows graze in the distant pasture.
