Description: A fine, dark impression on laid paper with full, large margins, signed in pencil; slight, uneven time toning mostly in the margins and a repaired edge tear far from the image. According to LOC, the plate was printed by Frederick Reynolds for the Brooklyn Society of Etchers and was afterwards destroyed. Despite the bucolic subject (families in a park, others walking through the arch of a stone bridge), there is something typically disturbing about the print, perhaps determined by the black sky, which seems not to indicate night, but rather a storm as yet unnoticed by the people.
