Aquatint and etching printed in blue ink on wove paper.
Edition unknown; ours one of 10 artist’s proofs.
The border surrounding the composition is separate from the main subject, as is clear from the plates’ indents visible on the verso. It is unclear whether two separate plates were used to obtain this, or whether a clean wiping of the white band between the two sufficed for the artist to obtain this visually attractive compositional element. Either way, it is technically masterful.
Signed, titled, dated, and numbered in Roman numerals in pencil.
