More Information
Farm buildings sit in the foreground of an idyllic valley. Dramatic contrast in the foreground helps the viewer perceive depth. The stroke pattern is the same throughout the work of art and is sympathetic to Good's other lithographs. In this lithograph, Good tries to portray a positive, almost hopeful, image of rural recovery and resiliency.
