Description
Cactus and brush in the foreground with mountains behind them.
Signed on mount: "Frederick Monsen." Title supplied by cataloger. Monsen's typed label on back says: "Arizona. On the mountains and mesas of Southern Arizona the sahuaro is so common that perhaps we overlook its beauty of form, yet its lines are as sinuous as those of a Moslem Minaret, its flutings as perfect as those of a Doric column." Published in series Monsen wrote for The Craftsman, March, 1907.
