Leighton, Clare, 1898-1989
Found in 338 Collections and/or Records:
Image is identical to Final Proof .
Sap bucket: large, rough sketch of a bucket in the middle of the page.
Sap bucket: small, detailed study of a bucket with a handle in the upper left corner.
Study of a tree on the left side of the page, filling almost the entire vertical space (page oriented landscape style). A few small branches extending out. A knot or hole visible on left side of trunk.
Study of sled couched in snowdrifts in upper left portion of the page.
Forested landscape with four covered sap buckets at the bottom of the page.
Two leafless trees, gnarled and with large branches extending out. Left tree has a broken branch. Piles of snow beneath.
Detailed study of a sugaring shed between trees with covered sap buckets attached to their trunks. A note in the upper left corner appears to read "waist high spigot."
This is the least finished of the three unnumbered prints. Large portions of the bottom left of the image are left without ink. The ink is applied very lightly and unevenly. The corners have triangular ink-stains where the block must have picked up ink outside the actual engraving.
Lower left-hand portion is largely blank. A dark patch is visible where the leftmost, leaning figure will be engraved in.
This proof closely resembles [0b], but corrections have been added in gouache. Large portions of the bottom left are un-inked. A black patch is visible where the leftmost, leaning figure will be engraved.
First state in which the leftmost figure is engraved (he occupies an undifferentiated black patch in the unnumbered proofs). This print follows State [0c]: corrections in State [0c] are incorporated into this print. Whether the two follow each other immediately, without any other intermediate states, is not clear.
Numbered 1 in upper right corner.
Top left corner is badly torn and mangled. Staple marks at top left; pin holes and tears visible in the other three corners as well. Fingerprints are visible in some corners.
Numbered 2 in upper right corner.
Numbered 3 in upper right corner.
Numbered 4 in upper right corner.
Numbered 5 in upper right corner.
Numbered 6 in upper right corner.
This state is unnumbered, but falls between States 6 and 7 in the engraving process. The clearest clue is in the sled, where the upward-curving runner and some detail in the wood is added in gouache to State 6, and then appears to be engraved in this unnumbered print (but in less detail than in State 7).
Follows State [6a] - details have especially been added to the sled and oxen.
Numbered 7 in upper right corner.
