This is one of Gabor Peterdi’s masterpieces. Examples of this work are held in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art and the National Gallery of Art. It is a complex work—enormously interesting to view and interestingly created: Peterdi used etching for the background and engraving for the other elements, and placed the four colors by stenciling. This work very much reflects Peterdi’s learning at Atelier 17.
