Design History:
This design was part of the original series of forty-eight designs completed by October 1931 and was also included in later reprintings. The example images were taken with different cameras. However, Version III copies typically do differ somewhat in printing technique and ink color from earlier version copies. In the lower background Version I has a complex gray and pale green bokashi fading out upwards, but Version III has only a simple gray wash in part of the same area.
