The Façade of the Parthenon. Sunset. 1913. Lithograph. Wuerth 333. 16 1/8 x 21 1/4 (sheet 18 1/8 x 24 1/4 ). Series: Pictures in the Land of the Temples #27. Edition 50. A fine impression printed on the full sheet of 'INGRES PMF (ITALIA)' laid paper. Signed in pencil. $1,250.

Pennell writes, "Just as the bell rings at sunset, from between a rift in the clouds of the spring evening the last ray of the setting sun striked the pediment of the Parthenon. Against the black clouds over the mountains, it is transfigured, and then slowly one leaves -- turning from the wonder of man's work to the wonder of God's sunset, and the wonder of the afterglow over Eleusis."
