Vintage print is taken from Portfolio 1 of the 1958 Metropolitan Museum of Art's Seminars in Art book series. As part of the Book of the Month club, this art Seminar series was subscription that sent new portfolios of prints every month along with a book to study the art and learn to appreciate fine art. Each book contained a dozen unbound full color prints of selected works.

Salvaged from Portfolio 1 is a color vintage print reproducing the 1850 oil painting Imaginary Landscape by Asher B. Durand. It's a soothing idyllic image illustrative of 19th century American landscape painting that captures the vastness and majesty of the American continent before much of it was defaced by settlement and industry. In the foreground livestock move through pasture near the remnants of old growth trees. A river and mountains stretch back into the distance and make you want to travel farther and explore more.

The print is a full color reproduction measuring 12-1/2" w x 9-1/2" h. The print has some white space around the edges ranging from 1inch to about 2 inches on the bottom.

The print is on heavy paper stock and in excellent condition without tears or blemishes.

It is suitable for framing or can be used to enhance a scrapbook, collage, or decoupage project. This fine image could also be scanned for use in new artistic works.

This print ships within the United States. I will send it by U.S. mail with stiff cardboard or a manila folder around it to prevent bending, folding and tearing during transit.

If you have any questions please convo me.

Thanks for looking and please peruse my other listings. Favorite my store because I'm always going through my pile of estate sale finds and finding interesting pages from vintage books and sometimes putting together some upcycled wall decor too.

Also please look at my original fiction section. http://www.etsy.com/shop/tracyfalbe?section_id=10714579
