A charming scene of a Dutch farmer among a group of cows in a pasture. On the horizon we see a number of other farms and homes, including the distinctive silhouette of a Dutch windmill. An excellent example of Bartlett's early European work and in a larger size than most etchings he produced later in life. Richly colored with deep green, blue, and yellow ochre.
The print is signed CWB 1912 in the bottom left plate, pencil signed in bottom left margin, and numbered "N. 2 / 75" in bottom right margin. As noted in the catalog raisonne, A Printmaker in Paradise, many times Bartlett did not produce the entire edition of 75 prints for his self-printed etchings and the true number of prints produced of this image may be less than 75.
The original copper plate for this print is in the collection of the Honolulu Academy of Arts.
Size: image 10 x 15-7/8 inches, framed 22-1/4 x 26-1/4 inches
