Notes: Exceedingly rare. A scarce pre-earthquake small-format woodblock print design. Artist monogram; lower right. Miller also used the identical figure of a Korean girl in a green coat in the first state impression titled, "By the Great River Han, Korea"; from the same year. (Brown: Fig. 34, pg. 45).

This is the exact impression used/displayed at the Pacific Asia Museum's 1998 Exhibition, "Between Two Worlds: The Life and Art of Lilian May Miller", and illustrated in the accompanying Pacific Asia Museum catalog. Compare the same vertical mark above the "N" in the word Korean; also shown in the Pacific Asia Museum catalog.

Lilian Miller wrote, "My sister, with a green coat over her head to cover her face: for she is young and it is not proper that the eyes of strange men should rest upon her face."

Provenance: Acquired directly from a descendant of the L.M. Miller family. This was accompanied with the entire family collection of remaining works; including original paintings, pencil sketches and one of a kind proofs.
