Springtime

Description

Scene after Dutch landscape artist A.J. van Wyngaerdt. Lithographed by Hermann Harring, a chromist that worked for Prang for over fifteen years taking paintings and breaking down their colors to create a replica in lithograph form.
     "Springtime" was described in Prang's Chromo for Sept 1871 as a companion piece to "Harvest near North Conway."
     "The cool, green meadow, upon which cows and sheep are quietly grazing, the outskirts of the grove, closing the picture upon the left, the blue hills, which arrest the eye in teh far distance, and the translucent sky, studded with fleeting white clouds, which overarches the whole -- all these elements combine to produce one of the sweetest idyls ever fixed upon canvas."
