Notes: This unique impression is another example of Miller pulling new prints from the blocks of some of her most popular early works. She would create alternative versions for several of these compositions, recoloring some blocks to produce color variations. This design was taken from an original ink on paper painting with a similar title, "Snow on Bamboo" from the artist's period at Vassar College. Brown, Fig. 9; pg. 20.
When Miller began to make art again in 1927, she did so with a burst of energy, making several dozen prints to sell on her 1929-30 Tour of America. She created alternate versions for several of these compositions, recoloring some blocks to produce color variations.
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.
