The Black Boat, No.1
By Ernest Stephen Lumsden
Original etching
Signed and numbered in ink

Issued in E.S.Lumsden’s ‘Third Indian Set’, The Black Boat, No.1 is typical of the scenes upon the river front which the artist considered to display the essential spirit of Benares. E.S.Lumsden had spent nearly two years in India, working on his first two sets of Indian etchings, and he was to return to these subjects intermittently over a further seven years between 1919 and 1926.
