Mabel A. Hewit

(American, 1903–1984)


Sheet: 18 x 23 cm (7 1/16 x 9 1/16 in.)

Gift of Mr. and Mrs. William Jurey in memory of Mabel A. Hewit 2005.345.23



This simple line drawing was Hewit’s first idea for Rocky River, a scene from a Cleveland suburb. She elaborated upon the landscape in a drawing executed in lithographic crayon in another sketchbook, but she continued to make changes when she drew on the lithographic stone.
