Description

This aquatint by Harold Doolittle was done in an edition of 125 as the Print Makers Society of California Gift Print for its Associate Membership in 1944. The Print Makers Society was renamed from the Print Makers of Los Angeles in 1921.

Harold Doolittle was the prototypical artist-craftsman, working in printmaking, photography, furniture making and graphic design, papermaking, metalwork, harpsichord building, etc.

"Mountain Serenity" depicts Mount Shasta in Northern California, creating the composition using pure aquatint, no lines, in a series of tones running from the black foreground to the white of the paper, capturing the atmosphere of the Tule fog in the valley and creating a sense of great space.
