General Description

Along with other lithographs (such as Early Morning and Copper Mine, Butte), Spillway provides further evidence of the early development of Brooks' use of stark contrasts, dramatic vistas, and dark skies. With its focus on the bridge and the sweeping concrete curves below, Spillway resonates with the work of artists such as Charles Sheeler who repeatedly turned to the beauty and power of machines and industrial structures for inspiration.
