  Thomas Moran   (1837-1926)

  VALLEY OF THE BABBLING WATERS, UTAH, 1874. Gilcrease 93. Monogram of Moran and last name of the wood engraver, Bogert, in the block. Joni L. Kinsey, "Moran and the Art of Publishing," in Thomas Moran, National Gallery of Art, 1997, p. 312: "His wood engravings in The Aldine, for example, are among his most beautiful prints." This image derives from the 1873 sketches he made while on the John Wesley Powell expedition in Zion National Park. Moran used this image again, almost identically, in one of his chromolithographs for the 1876 Prang publication on the Yellowstone region. An extraordinary work in fine condition by one of our greatest American artists.
  Wood engraving, 8 7/8 x 12 3/4 inches. SOLD.
