Description

Fanny Adele Watson was a mystic, often incorporating human figures into her landscape compositions. This large lithograph is of the eroded rock formations in Bryce Canyon National Park in Southwestern Utah.

The Bryce Canyon park website notes: "Wind, water and time have eroded Bryce Canyon National Park's sandstone cliffs into otherworldly characters plucked from the unconscious of a mad Viking. Rows of humanoid pillars crosshatched by rock strata look almost intentional but perfectly surreal. So silent, eerie and beautiful. So improbable it has to be true. Your first view of the park is a dramatic unveiling. Wind through stands of pine trees until they break at the rim of Bryce Canyon National Park, revealing a panorama of goblins, towers and fins of a color you can’t quite name."
