  Thomas Moran   (1837-1926)

 
  LAKE GEORGE, 1874. Not in Gilcrease. Moran's monogram and engraver C. Maurand's name in the block. The National Gallery of Art exhibition catalog on Moran states (pp. 312-313): "His wood engravings in The Aldine, for example, are among his most beautiful prints...[Moran wrote] 'the best pieces of engraving that have ever been made from my drawings'." Moran did a series of Lake George views (many are available) which are among "his most dramatic compositions." Such work heped open this area of the Adirondacks to tourism. This is a superb example of American wood engraving, in fine condition.
