Lithograph, 1949, Freeman L49.1, edition 30. 10 x 14 1/4 in. Signed and numbered in pencil. Here we have a fine impression with full margins. There are remains of two tiny hinges on the top corners, verso, otherwise this print is in fine condition. This powerful, early lithograph was printed by George Miller in New York. This work symbolized in black and white the emotions engendered by his four years of war experiences and the shock he had felt when he was stationed at the Bikini Atoll in 1946. (Crawford had been appointed artist-correspondent by Fortune magazine to work with meteorologists on visual charts pertaining to the atomic testing at this remote location.) (See Freeman, page 4, The Lithographs of Ralston Crawford, 1992, published by the University of Kentucky Press.)
