Lithograph, 1939, Johnson 14, Cole 15; edition 250. 9 x 11 3/4 in. Signed in pencil. This is a superb impression printed on a soft white wove paper.The margins are full with a deckle edge showing on all sides. The condition is excellent. As described by Johnson, "Of all nineteen of Grant Wood's lithographs, Fertility stands out as the most optimistic, literally swelling with symbols of Midwestern abundance, hope, and reassurance that the land will respond, providing sustenance for the American people still reeling from the devastating effects of the Great Depression." See Grant Wood: The 19 Lithographs; a Catalogue Raisonné by Bruce E. Johnson (2016), pg. 110.
