Old Oaks in Winter -  BURR

Old Oaks in Winter
Drypoint, 1920, Seeber 81, edition unknown. 9 7/8 x 6 7/8 in. Initialed in the plate, lower left. Signed and titled in pencil. This is a superb impression with full margins. The condition is excellent. An outstanding winter scene by Burr, this image captures the atmosphere of cold and snow. There's a later version where the plate was cut down by an inch on the bottom.

Piñon Trees and Spanish Peaks, Colorado -  BURR

Piñon Trees and Spanish Peaks, Colorado
Etching printed in colors, 1906-07, Seeber 42, edition perhaps 50. 6 1/8 x 9 3/8 in. Signed in pencil, lower left. This is a superb impression of this uncommon early color etching. The margins are probably full and the condition is fine. (There's stray printer's ink on the verso which is faintly showing on the right margin.) This was Burr's "first experiment in color" after moving to Denver in 1906. He was forty-seven. He was also a gifted watercolor painter and he viewed color etching as an ideal means to transition from one medium to the other. This rare print is illustrated on the cover of the Seeber catalogue raisonné.
