The Last Anvil Makers
by Nathan Greene
This illustration is taken from two historical photographs and shows workers operating a steam hammer to forge an anvil using the open die or blacksmith method of hammer forging.
The people in the painting are Carl M. Wright and his father Mr. Arthur J. (Sy) Wright, anvil makers for the Columbus Forge and Iron Company.
The steam hammer and the man operating it who is unidentified are from the Columbus Anvil Forging Company, makers of the Arm and Hammer anvil.
The monochrome pencil drawing was used to create the oil painting that is used as the fronticepiece in Anvils in Ameria and on the slip cover.
Limited edition prints are now available from the original pencil drawing.
These beautiful lithographic prints are on heavy acid free archival paper in two sizes.
Both sizes are numbered.
"The black and white pencil drawing is the foundation of most of my paintings. They allow me to plan out the composition, arrange patterns of light and dark and refine details before committing to the color canvas."
"My Black and white studies have a beauty of their own which I sometimes prefer over the full color version."
