Landscape with Window and Chair
Mezzotint – Image Size 4 X 3 inches
Printed in an edition of 150 prints and 10 artist’s proofs. Kipniss states that it is part of his working process to explore an image in pencil, in paint and in print. As the image evolves, its ramifications lead to hints of the next work. This image is well-suited for this medium since in mezzotint the artist literally draws the light as he burnishes the tiny rocked copper pinholes that trap the ink and become the image.
