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. As a young man he moved to New York, and began creating etchings, many of which were published by Klackner. In the late 1880s he traveled to London and Paris, and inspired by the European countryside concentrated on painting in oils and watercolors.
