Dance of the Haymakers after a painting by Asher Brown Durand. "From the collection of Harry Shaw Newman, The Old Print Shop.": A sixty-year old photomechanical reproduction of one of the great Asher B. Durand oil paintings. : Asher B. Durand (1796-1886) born in Jefferson Village (now Maplewood), New Jersey. He was apprenticeship to engraver Peter Maverick from 1812 to 1817, and entered into full partnership with Maverick running the New York branch of the Newark-based firm. The partnership dissolved in 1820 over Durand accepting John Trumbull's commission to engrave The Declaration of Independence. The completion of the commission in 1823 established Durand as one of the country's finest engravers. However in 1835, he abandoned engraving and took up painting.
