Bruhn, American Etching: The 1880s, ex. cat., Benton Museum, Univ. of CT, 1985; and in the Gilcrease Institute's essay in the book on their Moran collection. Thomas Moran is now the most sought-after artist of the Etching Revival and in this image he has managed to make Florida look as romantic as Venice. Images of Florida in this period are scarce.
