Bicknell, a Bostonian, was among the first Americans to experiment with the monotype after his Parisian studies in the early 1860s. His work was innovative and in 1881 exhibitions of about 50 of his monotypes were held in Boston and New York. American monotypes form this period are very scarce. A brilliant, richly inked impression in very fine condition,
