Condition: Fine condition and color. In February of 1917, Hyde attended an exhibition of her woodccuts in Columbia, South Carolina; from there she traveled to Charleston where she was the guest of Elizabeth Pringle. It was on Ms. Pringle's plantation where Hyde most likely painted this charming study. In 1918, Hyde produced a color print of this subject in etching and aquatint, in a very small edition, listed in Mason, Cat. #146.
