  • ARTIST: Ralston Crawford

  • DESCRIPTION: Signed and titled in pencil. This print is based on Crawford's painting of the Overseas Highway in the Florida Keys, a picture that made the artist a national celebrity when published in Life magazine in 1939. Crawford once said that he never painted anything he hadn't seen. This print is an excellent example of his ability to reduce his visual experience into precise elements—the road coursing into the impenetrable distance, the sky, and the ocean. <br><br>
