Drawing, Gray Iceberg

This is a Drawing. It was created by Frederic Edwin Church. We acquired it in 1917. Its medium is brush and oil paint on paperboard. It is a part of the Drawings, Prints, and Graphic Design department.

“Icebergs, to the imaginative soul,” reflects Noble, “have a kind of individuality and life. They startle, frighten, awe; they astonish, excite, amuse, delight, and fascinate; clouds, mountains and structures, angels, demons, animals and men spring to the view of the beholder.”

This object was donated by Louis P. Church.
