Yesterday was commissioned, but not used, by the Woodcut Society of Kansas City. Partway through engraving the woodblock Landacre realized that contrary to the Society’s request for something other than landscape, Yesterday “had more landscape than figure”. Landacre completed the wood engraving Black Stallion for the Woodcut Society instead. A similar stallion was incorporated into this print, adding meaning to the nude woman in a dreamlike state (Wien).
