This is the first state of two. In both states the lower half of the image is the same. In the first state the stone was scraped and the upper half was redrawn. The background of the oil painting, A Day in June, owned by the Detroit Institute of Arts, is similar to this version of the lithograph. The setting is Central Park.
The artist's widow, Emma Bellows, cataloged this version as the second state; however the artist cataloged a subsequent version as the second state; therefore this version is considered to be the first state.
