Wood engraving, 1940, edition 50. 15 3/4 x 9 1/2 in. Signed in the block, lower right. Signed, dated and numbered in pencil. This is a fine impression printed on Japanese paper. The margins are substantial and probably full. The condition is very good apart from some light toning within an early mat opening.

This is arguably his finest blockprint from his best period and impressions are found in the National Gallery, the Library of Congress and the Art Institute of Chicago.
