Description

An etching of the hills and trees in the Corral de Tierra, near Monterey, California doubles as a commemorative gift for the wedding guests of the artist and his new bride in “On June Fifth 1920…”. Haskell married his second wife, Emma Loveland Laumeister, in 1920, two years after the death of his first wife. With Emma he had four children and they settled in Phippsburg, Maine.

Throughout his life the local environs were a continual source of inspiration for Haskell, who, even on the monotone plate, was able to capture the rolling lushness of the Northern California countryside using his flicking technique.

This print, done in an edition of around 50 is included in the permanent collection of the Library of Congress.
