William Pate’s “American Landscape”

The large steel engravings published by William Pate and Co., N.Y. in his National Gallery of American Landscape (1869) were created from paintings of American scenery by various well-regarded American landscape artists. These fine engravings were issued uncolored on sturdy folio sheets. The quality of the artists and the engravers was outstanding – making them among the best steel engravings ever made.
