Provenance: The Print Club of Rochester Presentation Print, 1951.

At the time Schultheiss was created the presentation print for the Print Club of Albany John Taylor Arms wrote of him: “His prints have a rich mellowness born of study, contemplation and understanding. Conceived in the classical spirit, the warmth of the artist’s imagination and his sympathy with life assure for them a significance and vitality for which his brilliant but disciplined technique is a fitting vehicle.”

A note from the Print Club of Rochester discussing Schultheiss’s work and life will accompany this print.
