Caught Our Eyes: A Frosty Morning

Share this post:

As I made my way to work in temperatures hovering near zero degrees Fahrenheit, it was hard to think of anything except staying warm. Millions of Americans were bundled up like me, experiencing this week’s shock of unusual Arctic cold. Once I thawed out and could start to think of other things, I recalled this 1920 woodcut entitled, appropriately enough, Frost by Bertha Lum. Its stark beauty and pale colors are enough to make you shiver all over again!
