This beautifully etched image by Thomas Moran measures 11 5/8 x 8 inches, is plate signed and dated. Thomas Moran was a leading artist of the American etching revival, and in 1877 was one of the founders of the New York Etching Club. Moran was known for his experimentation in all aspects of the etching process, and his ability to beautifully capture the atmosphere and energy of the American landscape. This view of the rugged landscape of Half Dome, the plunging depth of the valley and the towering height of the mountains is accentuated by Moran's richly inked rugged foreground and the contrasting, lightly etched lines of the background giving one the sense of the hostility of the environment.

Mielatz was born in Germany but came to the United States as a young boy, studying at the Chicago School of Design, although much of his etching technique was self taught. Mielatz was a member of New York Etching Club and was one of the first etchers elected to the National Academy of Design, where he was also the chief instructor of etching for many years.

This engraving by James Smillie measures 15 x 22 3/4 inches. Created after four paintings by Hudson River School founder Thomas Cole, this early lettered proof impression, published in Boston by L.A. Elliot, reads, "From the original Painting by Thomas Cole, in the possession of Rev.d Gorham D. Abbott, Spingler Institute, New York", under the title on the lower margin. Also included on the lower margin is a poem by J.H. Daniels. In 1842 Thomas Cole did a series of paintings that represented an allegory for the four stages of life; childhood, youth, manhood, and old age. Each phase accompanied by a guardian angel. In "Old Age" the voyager is looking across the river of life towards an angel filled sky, ready to enter the kingdom of heaven. Cole's paintings were converted to engravings after his death and widely distributed during "The Third Awakening", a period of religious activism from the late 1850's to the early 1900's.
