Evening with White Porch
Mezzotint – Image Size 10 X 18 inches
Robert Kipniss was born in 1931 in New York City. He has studied at the Art Students League, Wittenburg University, and the University of Iowa where he received his BA and MFA in painting and art history. He spent many years making lithographs from stone, aluminum and Mylar plastic. He then switched to pre rocked mezzotint plates of copper. The special soft, dreamy images possible with mezzotint are apparent in this, the first mezzotint commissioned by the PCA. Robert Kipniss’ works are in the Metropolitan , Boston MFA and the Smithsonian, among many.
