Hoerman devoted most of his time to landscapes, particularly focusing on western settings and desert scenes. This print depicts the ancient stone pueblo village of Walpi in northern Arizona.Physical Description
Two figures in the foreground stand with their backs to the viewer, looking toward buildings in the middleground. The buildings are built in the pueblo style, with some arched windows and beams jutting out from the roof. A ladder leans against a building in the far left of the composition. The scene is heavily shadowed, by both the buildings and the figures.Primary Object Classification Print Primary Object Typeintaglio printRights
