Description

This work by Stanley William Hayter—undisputedly the most influential person in modern printmaking—is an Intaglio print made from engraving on a copper plate.  The plate was begun in October 1945 and completed in March 1946.

This impression was made in the summer of 1973 at Atelier 17 by Hayter, with assistance from Hector Saunier and Rigmor Poenaru, for the Nine Engravings portfolio published in 1974 by Association American Artists, New York.

This is impression number 41 out of an edition of 100 (aside from ten sets in Roman Numerals and ten sets hors commerce which were retained by the artist).  Printed in black ink on paper handmade by the legendary (and now shuttered) Barcham Green paper mill.  On sheets 11.25″ x 15.75″.  Signed, titled, and dated in pencil by the artist at bottom.

This engraving was previously printed in an edition limited to 30 on various papers.  The edition was completed on March 1, 1973.  The plate was cancelled after the 1973 edition by engraving a signature which prints in reverse.
