Famed watercolorist Robert Childress came from his Connecticut
studio to choose these three favorite sites for his portrait of the
University. From his vibrant originals he carefully supervised this
limited first edition. Here is Bascom Hall amid autumn foliage,
Carillon Tower surrounded by the soft pinks and greens of spring,
and the Lincoln Statue in the rich patina of the years. Reproduc-
tion is on heavy watercolor style paper. The Bascom Hall print is
24" x 18"; Carillon Tower and Lincoln Statue are 12" x 16"
each.
Each will fram'e handsomely, of course. Own a set for your den or
office, and give sets to your friends and family to whom these be-
loved scenes mean so much. $2.0 the set, unframed.
