Harrison Cady (1877-1970). "In the Chester Valley, Pennsylvania."
Lithograph. 9 3/4 x 13 1/4 (sheet). Signed in pencil.
Born in Massachusetts, Walter Harrison Cady (1877-1970) was the son of a general store proprietor. Travelling from Rockport, Maine to the Carolina Mountains, Cady became interested in depicting the life that he saw passing away through the influence of such modern devices as the automobile. In paintings, drawings and in drypoint etchings Cady in the late ‘20s and early ‘30s blended raw experience with considerable conceptual sorting to create a visual record of this vanishing life.
