Notes

Impressions outside the edition: An unnumbered impression (PhMA) is signed "Ernest Fiene 1926" (l.r.) and countersigned "George C. Miller/Printer" (l.l.). This impression was a gift to PhMA from the artist George Biddle (American 1885-1973). This impression is, therefore, signed by both artist and printer and dedicated to the printer. (See below.)

Inscriptions: PhMA impression: "To George C. Miller with compliments"; WMAA impression: "Collection of Mrs. Force" [Juliana R. Force, first director of the Whitney Museum of American Art--in pencil but not in artist's hand, bottom edge of sheet, center.]

Related Works: This lithograph is the reverse image of the painting "Winter Landscape" (date and location unknown). View a black and white reproduction of the painting by clicking here. A similar composition, the painting Winter Evening (not illustrated) is said to have been his first sale when it was purchased by Hamilton Easter Field, artist, collector and founder of Ogunquit [Maine] School of Painting and Sculpture, where Fiene later taught (see Chronology--1950-51).

Reproduced in: New York Times Magazine, Nov. 14, 1926

Paper: At least two impressions, the PhMA impression and number 16/30, are printed on japan paper.

Rounded Corners: Fiene lithographs with rounded corners include this work, Spring, Brooklyn Bridge, and White Rose in a Vase.
