Atelier 17 ︎︎︎
"Textures is an attempt to compose a symphony of lines with different strength and movement in relation ti a great variety of textural areas. As the title says, my main interest was concentrating on experimenting with and ysing the new soft ground techniques for textural effects. There was no particular symbolic meaning.
The technique of this copper plate is a combination of engraving and soft ground etching. The method applied I learned at Stanley William Hayter's Atelier 17. It was completed in 1945 in New York."
