Found in 338 Collections and/or Records:
Numbered 8 in upper right corner.
Numbered 9 in upper right corner.
Numbered 10 in upper right corner.
Signed by Leighton. Labeled: Tobacco, 22/50; 614.
Two compositional studies matted together. These are quite different from the final image. Two windows are cut out: a large rectangular and small octagonal window.
Signed proof. In bottom left corner, print has been titled "Tobacco" and signed by Clare Leighton in pencil. Verso: labeled "#6" with some measurements in pencil.
Studies of tobacco leaves. A sketch of a tobacco flower has been cut out and taped into a window in this sheet.
Bunches of tobacco leaves. A tobacco-drying shed in the upper left of the page.
In upper left, a circular outline of the overall composition of the plate. Beneath, a sketch of a flower, and a landscape with a tobacco shed.
Two rows of tobacco leaves on a pole. Beneath, a sketch of a tobacco spear (a pole with a pointed cap). Notes on the page are difficult to decipher, resemble "light and prost[--] [--]."
View of numerous long, low tobacco sheds with fields and bushes in between.
Outline of a man bending down. Sketch of an axe. To the right, a list of objects to go at the bottom of the plate: "hoe, spear, axe, cigar, tob. flower, worm." All of these are easily identifiable in the finished image except the "worm," which Leighton may have decided to leave out.
Two circular compositional studies. To the right, study of a tobacco barn with the doors open. Left top and bottom corners badly crumpled.
Very rough landscape of tobacco barns and fields. Rays at the top of the page resemble the sun or a mountain. An unidentified, circular drawing at the bottom.
Two sheets taped together. A wide view of tobacco barns and fields, with a sunny sky above (shown by what look like rays and cloud-like scribbles). On the fields, Leighton has written "white" and "w.". A long, thin strip of paper has been taped horizontally at the bottom, with more tobacco barns. Paper is badly smudged.
Detailed drawing of a barn, with doors open.
Partial proof, taped face-down. The top half of the image and the objects at the bottom are printed in ink, mostly finished. The figures and work in the foreground are left blank, drawn in with graphite and white gouache.
