Catalogue entry

P07391 [from] GENERATIONS 9, 12, 14, 16, 19 AND 23 1978 [P07388P07393]

All inscribed ‘Denny 78’ bottom right and ‘14/35’, except No.23 which is inscribed ‘31/35’
Six etchings, two with hand-colouring, printed at J C Editions and published by Bernard Jacobson, each 20 5/8×27 3/4 (52.3× 70.3)
Purchased from Bernard Jacobson (Grant-in-Aid) 1980

These six etchings [P07388P07393] are from a set of twenty-four, all with asymmetrical linear configurations which relate by mirroring one another through the set. The etching plates were printed over watercolour wash and, on some, a further wash was then added (as in nos.9 and 16). The plate alters the ground colours and adds black or white soft-ground etched line.
