Description: George Kenneth Hartwell was a prominent American artist who had a successful career as a painter, magazine illustrator, and printmaker. His favorite medium for prints was the lithograph which showcased his excellent ability as a draftsman and keen sense of composition. Mad River Mill is a fine example of the lithographs the artist produced of old historic buildings in the New England area.

This old mill, which appears to have been abandoned when the drawing was made, was apparently located on the Mad River in Vermont. This is a nicely detailed and textured work that effectively uses contrast and a variety of shades and tones for depth and effect.
