The Open Gate
Edward G. Eisenlohr ( American, 1872 - 1961 )
In 1930 Edward G. Eisenlohr, an accomplished painter and draftsman, produced his first lithograph. Lithography provided him with yet another medium in which to experiment with depth and texture. Eisenlohr's prints translate the exquisite draftsmanship and precise observation of nature that characterize his drawings. In his lithographs he continued to explore the expressive possibilities of landscapes in North Texas and New Mexico.
