Description
This was published in the 1881 American Art Review. This impression was separated at the lower plate mark and has been repaired. The image is fine. In 1880 Koehler, the patron saint of the etching revival, asked Parrish to etch a plate for the American Art Review, which published one or two original American etchings in each monthly issue. Parrish sent proofs of two dozen etchings, and after Koehler selected one entitled November Parrish spent several months reworking the plate, since, as he wrote Koehler, "my bow to the public through the medium of the Review is, to me, a very important matter."
