We have a new past/present post for our readers today, featuring two striking images of trees. I love how the branches seem to fill the whole print, exuding a sense of expansion and grandeur. The contemporary print is by Jake Muirhead, who will have a one person show at the OPG gallery this late fall.
Image on the left: The Great Elm Tree of Shackamaxon ( Now Kensington). Under which William Penn conducted his treaty with the Indians in 1682 it fell during a storm in 1810 by George Lehman. Aquatint, 1630.
Image on the right : Orchard Trees by Jake Muirhead. Etching and aquatint, 2005.
