|Description: Print is signed on recto "1952 2/200 Harold Feinstein." However, the edition notation by the artist himself is misleading. Although Feinstein intended to produce an edition of 200, he actually made no more than 10 prints of this image. Here we see long ranks of marching soldiers on a misty forest path, tall, spindly tree trunks overpowering their small, dark forms.
A well-known lensman and master printer with a storied career, Feinstein's work can be found in such important collections as the George Eastman House, the Musee d'Art Moderne (Paris), and the Museum of Modern Art, where his work was purchased for the collection by Edward Steichen when Feinstein was only nineteen. 1|
