2018 Gift of Art : Attic Sale #5 Overland Trail, Wyoming

Between 1929 – 1931 Edna Martin (1896 – 1996) explored the Overland Trail in Wyoming for three summers.  The result is a beautiful series of etchings and watercolors of the area.

The Overland Trail (also known as the Overland Stage Line) was a stagecoach and wagon trail in the American West during the 19th century. While portions of the route had been used by explorers and trappers since the 1820s, the Overland Trail was most heavily used in the 1860s as an alternative route to the Oregon, California, and Mormon trails through central Wyoming.
