L. O. Griffith was a frequent Brown County visitor prior to 1920 and moved there permanently in 1922. He was very prolific and while his oils are beloved, he was also a very gifted printmaker. He specifically worked in the aquatint process which yielded both monochromatic and multi-plate, colored works. Today’s example, Bridge Over Salt Creek (our title) is a classic example. It’s an aquatint print (open edition) of a sunbathed bridge spanning one of the many creeks running through ‘Peaceful Valley’. The scene is bathed in light and shadow on a summer’s day. Nicely framed (by us!) and ready to hang. We love bringing these modestly-priced, genuine Brown County works to market – something real for every budget.
