Description
This impression comes from the first edition, before the removal of the solid border and before the sky was brightened. The darker blues and greens allows the reds and yellows to glow, and lends a dusky mood to the portrayal of Atalaya Mountain, "atalaya" meaning watchtower. This impression was also used in the catalogue to illustrate the first edition.
