Jim Egleson's was born in the 1920's and was a printmaker, painter, and science illustrator. He studied engineering at Swarthnore College and Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He served in WW2 joining the Navy and was a Naval Officer engineer on the USS Saratoga and became an emergency medic when the ship was attacked which he later drew sketches of. His prints are now in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the New York Public Library.

This etching is of Monhegan island which is off the coast of Maine only spanning about 4.5 miles in area. It is signed, numbered, titled and dated in the plate and even has his personal monogram in the lower right hand corner. This print is delightful and fun as we see a few boats leaving the harbor while their is a small group of people waiting on the dock to go back to the mainland. The print is in absolute pristine condition and wonderfully framed. On the reverse their is a small artist bio from the Associated American Artists and a blurred stamp from a frame company in Philadelphia. Their is also pencil on the reverse "Cooper 34338-c".
