This is a lithograph print of an oil painting by J.K. Dinesen, produced for the Seattle World's Fair. Otherwise known as the Century 21 Exposition, the world's fair ran from April 21 - October, 21 of 1962 where it featured the construction of the iconic Space Needle, Alweg monorail, several sports stadiums and performing arts buildings.
The print was described as follows in the official catalogue for the art of J.K. Dinesen at the Seattle World's Fair.
"Dinesen's reverence for the beauties and mysteries of life is evident in the deep dark stream flowing quietly among the trees. The slumbering earth still lies under its blanket of snow. The surging strength of the birth of a new life cycle, however, is shown with deft definitiveness in the detailed, vibrant and varied shades of coloring of the trees."
