George Elbert Burr worked as an illustrator for several New York magazines: Harper's, Cosmopolitan, and Frank Leslie's Weekly Newspaper. His work for Leslie's allowed him to travel coast to coast in America, indulging his passion for landscapes. Burr set out on a European journey in 1896, and traveled for almost five years. After his travels, Burr moved to Colorado and later Arizona, and made prints depicting the monumental deserts and mountains of the American Southwest.
