Description

Cataloguer Lucy Lippard commented on this piece, "The year 1940-41, when Evergood was resident artist at Kalamazoo College, seems to have been one of his few periods of even slight involvement with landscape. During that year he made an etching, a zincograph, and a chalk drawing (figs. 158-61) of the same subject--the meeting of rural and industrial areas on the outskirts of a midwestern town. ...Of the three media used in Kalamazoo the zincograph was most suited to the subject, its grainy, smoky quality better evoking the bleak atmosphere." (P. 30, The Graphic Work of Philip Evergood, Lippard, 1966)
