A beautiful, Barbizon inspired twilight scene, this etching measures 16 1/8 x 20 1/4 inches, published in 1888 by Klackner, New York, plate signed and dated, pencil signed, with two remarques in the lower margin. William Lathrop was the son of a midwest farmer and throughout his life worked as both an artist and a farmer.

In the late 1880s he traveled to London and Paris, and inspired by the European countryside concentrated on painting in oils and watercolors.
