Earlier proof print before blurring the right separation strip.

 

"On the left under a tree a woman with a naked child sits on her arm and looks to the sun setting on the left; next to her, stretched out on the right lawn, a man is resting. In the middle of the landscape a farmer stands on his staff and looks out at the group resting on the left." (Engelmann 1857, p. 492f.).

 

"The etching pressures are separated from a plate longer on the right, and indeed 4"81/2" wide, but where such plates were later cut off, by a line, but the remaining space to the right is empty; on this empty space the above No. 916. was later engraved. The air left and the setting sun is not present, likewise the standing farmer wears a higher hat and leans stiffly and diagonally against the staff, whereas with finished impressions the hat is bigger and the right knee is bent". (Engelmann 1875, p. 493).
