Vintage Nantucket Serigraph of The Easy Street Boat Basin with a Catboat by Roy Clifford Smith, circa 1920s-1940s, a desirable waterfront scene with a catboat sailing into the basin with a bollard on Steamship Wharf in the foreground. Old North Wharf in the background, and the historic South Church and the Orange Street heights even further in the background, signed lower right, and titled lower left. Serigraphs are a labor intensive form of original artwork involving hand cutting and hand coloring a silkscreen lithograph.

While Smith’s work has a very modern feel anticipating the 1950s and 1960s, he was actually active much earlier in the 1920s-1940s. Not much else is known about this artist, other than his dozen and a half to two dozen Nantucket scenes executed in two different sizes, and a larger map of the island. Interestingly, his work was retailed long ago in the Jordan Marsh Home Decorating department.
