Ferry crossing the River in New York Sears Gallagher was a Boston painter who is counted in the pantheon of the first generation of the Boston School that included Edmund C. Tarbell, William M. Paxton, Joseph R. DeCamp, Frank Benson, Philip L. Hale, and Herman Dudley Murphy. As the popularity of Gallagher's etchings also grew, he was asked to join the staff of Boston University, where he became a popular printmaking instructor. By 1920, Boston's venerable dealer in rare books and prints - Goodspeed's - published a biography with a checklist of his etchings. The same year, Doll & Richards also showed Gallagher's etchings.
