About: Like many of his fellow-members of the Society of American Wood Engravers, Albert Mumford Lindsay engraved other artists' paintings and illustrations for reproduction and then exhibited the prints as examples of the printmaking art. The catalogue of such an exhibition in Boston in 1890 lists Lindsay's engravings of works by seven artists, including the Western specialist Frederic Remington. Illustrator William Henry Hyde (1856-1943) worked for such magazines as Century, Harper's and Scribner's; he was also a painter of portraits and landscapes. In this story about a burgeoning love affair, a couple has an intense discussion of their feelings for each other.
