Misty Night, Danbury.

Lithograph, 1947. 280x395 mm; 11x15 1/2 inches. Edition of only 19. Signed in pencil, lower right. A very good impression of this extremely scarce lithograph.

We have found only four other impressions at auction in the past 30 years.

According to McCarron, "This is the only depiction of fog in Lewis's (1881-1962) printed œuvre, and the grainy nature of lithography is particularly suited to it, His use of a delicate tracery of crooked lines to denote tree limbs in the distance is, likewise, found only in this print." McCarron 142.
