Marble Quarrying: State [4a], [between 1949 and 1951]

 Item — Box: Oversize 2, Folder: 8
Call Number: MSS 7, Series II

Scope and Contents

This state is unnumbered, but the markings along the two necks of the crane and on the rope in the foreground indicate that it came somewhere between States 4 and 5. The only corrections in gouache are added to the shadows in the landscape at the top of the image. Leighton eventually did change this spot, but not following the corrections found in this state.


  • [between 1949 and 1951]
