90. Bruhn, Thomas P. “Thomas Moran’s Painter-Lithographs.” Vol. 15, no. 1 (Spring 1990), 2-19.

Between 1859 and 1869, Moran drew at least thirty-nine lithographs on stone. They are rare and very beautiful images. Bruhn provides a synopsis of Moran’s life and early artistic career, focusing on the prints that he suggests fall into three groups defined by subject, style, signature, or date. Moran was one of the few American artists to use lithography as a medium of expression. Following the excellent analytical essay is a checklist of the lithographs, including locations, notes, and comments on the images.
