Four Views of Winter

One of the benefits of the MGHL having such a diverse collection is seeing the different ways  illustrators portray a particular subject. With that in mind, today we’re highlighting a few winter scenes by Robert Andrew Parker, Al Parker, Jack Unruh, and Robert Weaver. Links to the finding aids are below.
