Reference: Comstock 4: ‘The etching was started in 1913 but, like Maur’s Farm, I’m sure FLG lovingly took it up again several years later, contemplating further work on the cooper. He may have touched the two prints of the 3rd state and called them 4th and 5th States.’…. ‘The Plate was the artist’s Diploma work on his election to the Royal Society of Painter-Etchers and Engravers Society’s Exhibition in that year.
Artprice records show that this etching has not been up for auction since 2005.Therefore rare.
