A California art print on Arches watercolor paper. 100% archival, and printed in HD.

"Dad wrote in his journal about this painting, `Water-colors of flood area done for Fortune Magazine, February 11, 1937. Men building levee -- nite light -- Hickman.' This levee was in Hickman, Kentucky, I believe. The painting was exhibited in the Chicago International 1938 exhibit (and also their traveling show for a year!) as well as at the Ferargil Gallery in March `37. I loved the feeling of the noise and action at night that is going on, very dramatic."
