DESCRIPTION:  References: Czestochowski 13, Prasse 193, only state. Published by the Print Club of Cleveland, edition of 260, with their ink stamp verso (Lugt 2049b), printed by George C. Miller. In excellent condition, the full sheet, 12 x 9, the sheet 16 x 11 1/4 inches.

A fine fresh impression, printed in black ink on a cream wove paper.

Although Burchfield achieved great fame after leaving Ohio, where he grew up, it is fitting that this iconic lithograph was created for the Print Club of Cleveland, for Burchfield graduated from the Cleveland Institute of Art (in 1916), and later in life he acknowledged the profound effect on his own development by a teacher at the CIA, the artist Henry Keller, who led a generation of Ohio watercolor painters of the Cleveland School which included Burchfield.
