The atmosphere in this Lesser Ury lithograph is dreary, reminding us of the difficult lives that farmers led in late 19th, early 20th century Europe. A peasant woman in a country setting and under a grey sky squats to get water from a small stream The almost bare trees suggest a Fall day. The print is signed (L. Ury) and dated (1917) in pencil on the lower right margin. There are also notations in pencil from another hand(s) on the lower edge. The print is in fine condition with a light yellow stain on the left margin, a slight mat burn, and various shallow creases. The print will be sent in an acid free mat.
