    More Information:

    EDIT: Upon close examination, there are minor differences apparent between the painting and published cover, and we assume the artist either made these adjustments after publication or they were made during the production process. This image was also reproduced on page 65 in John Berkey Painted Space (Friedlander, 1991).
