Graham was approximately 20 years old when he created this print and it was one of his first artworks he made while studying at the University of British Columbia. He would reminisce on this print for over 30 years until in 1993 he recreated it as the other Grimm brother’s study, Jacob Grimm’s study in Berlin in 1860.
