Yet to earn a living as a painter in the late s and early s was highly problematic compared to the opportunities afforded by the flourishing market for black-and-white illustrations. In the post- World War II era, the building was newly appreciated again, with the growth in the historic preservation movement making people more aware of treasures from the past.

It may well be that many of the figures he added to the woodblocks -- both men and women -- were based on Lu wearing his "Turkish costumes.

After reaching the Rocky Mountains, he often selected trees and lakes or streams for his foregrounds, features more familiar and appealing to those accustomed to the verdant mountains of the eastern United States and Europe.

Woodward's earnings had been sufficient to buy property and establish residence in South Orange, New Jersey, one of the new suburbs accessible by ferry and rail from New York City. The Indians chiefly discovered the mine and work it on the spot, and he told me the way of it.

After visiting the Spring exhibition, he wrote that it was "very fine, for the French are the strongest people in Art in the world. Cellars consisted of plain dirt floors.
