Lithograph, 1942. 325x260 mm; 12 3/4x10 1/4 inches, full margins. Edition of 250. Signed in pencil, lower right. Published by Associated American Artists, New York. A very good impression.

This lithograph is based on a mural series that Curry (1897-1946) created for the Kansas State Capitol, Topeka, 1937. These murals were divided into three themes: the settlement of Kansas (depicting the conquistadors and plainsmen); the homesteaders (which included John Brown); and pastoral prosperity or representations of modern Kansas (the current lot).
