The drawing was a study for the same-titled color carborundum relief etching, for which only two impressions exist. The traced pencil markings in the drawing, in fact, reveal that this drawing was used to transfer the design on to the copper plate. Ittman notes that the copper plate is in the collection of the National Museum of American History, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, DC. Ittmann 140.
