Ice River Country
1884-1954, American

A great sun-drenched western scene, this etching measures 12 3/8 x 10 3/8, published in 1936, pencil signed, dated and titled. Palenske was equally an outdoorsman and an artist, spending much of his time out riding and exploring the western wilderness. His etchings reflect his great love of the outdoors, as in this image of two riders pausing to look up at the rugged mountain terrain.
