Description

This lithograph, along with 60.704.1 and 60.704.2, were executed by Lars Moeller, the native Greenlander in charge of the press, after watercolors by Hinrich Rink. It is probable that the prints were designed for export as well as home sale due to the legends in English, Danish, and Greenlandic. They were made in a small number on the lithographic press Rink brought to Greenland in 1857, and these prints are probably the best examples of the early work. Medium: color lithograph.
Additional Makers: Lars Møller (Greenlandic-Inuit, 1842–1926)
