Description

Roi Partridge did this large landscape of the mountains about 50 miles north of Bellingham, Washington, near the Canadian border in 1927. Partridge uses his signature line work to create the rocks in the foreground and the faces of the snow capped mountains of the Cascades.

"Snowfields" was exhibited and illustrated extensively thoughout the 1930s and 40s. There was one proof printed by Kay Bradner at Mills College in Oakland, California in 1980, annotated so by Partridge on the print. The plate was cancelled at Mills.

Partridge was born in Washington before it became a state and its mountain ranges remained an inspiration to him throughout his whole career.
