"God's Acre, Caanan, CT" by Walter Dubois Richards, Amer., (1907-2006)
Lithograph, ca. 1940, ed. 200, 14 x 9-7/8, signed, titled and annotated A.P. in pencil, on warm white wove paper. This large and stunning lithograph is a tour de force showing Richards technical precision and emotive command of the medium. This beautiful and stately congregational church is located in New Caanan, CT; the meeting house for which dates to 1843, the chapel, parlor and church school dating to 1953. It was a favorite subject for Richards, who made several masterful lithographs exploring the shifting patterns of light and shadow encountered there at various times of the day.
