About this Item

Printed by American Lithographic Co. The Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railroad commissioned the original oil painting from Moran 1912 and still has the painting today. Thomas Moran (1837-1926) was the most famous landscape painter of the American West at the time and had begun painting the Grand Canyon in 1873. The Santa Fe spur line was the first track to the South Rim, and the railroad promoted and purchased art of the Canyon. Most of the 2500 chromo-lithographic prints from the railroad were distributed as gifts and heavily used. This is one of a small number of the prints recently found in the archives of the railroad, uncirculated and untrimmed. There is one half-inch closed tear repaired on the lower right corner margin. The print shows the Canyon and far-off Colorado River from the Hermit Rim, with a thunderstorm in the distance and pinyon and juniper trees in the foreground. A striking panorama in beautiful condition. ; Chromo-lithograph; 27" x 35". Bookseller Inventory # 009603
