Fishing in Minnesota

Fishing in Minnesota (or Fishing near Morristown or Summer Day)
Adolf Dehn (1895-1968)
Lithograph, 1954
Location no. AV1985.305.426

Born in Waterville, Minnesota, Adolf Dehn created captivating landscapes, cityscapes, and portraits illustrating humanity with irreverence, humor, and affection. Dehn studied at The Minneapolis School of Art beginning in 1914 and enrolled in the Art Students League in New York from approximately 1917-1918. In 1920 the master printer, George Miller, introduced Dehn to lithography, which became his preferred medium.

    I’m sorry, but the MHS does not sell copies of this lithograph. Thanks for your interest however!

    Although the Dehn lithographs aren’t for sale, there are other fishing related fine art reproductions that are. Some of them can be found at the above link.
