Note: This impression is the first printing of the image. It is before the artist added five stencil colors to the final composition. Impressions of the image are in the collection of the Art Institute of Chicago, National Gallery of Art, Cleveland Museum and the Smart Museum at the University of Chicago. The 1940’s and 50’s are considered the artist’s best period of printmaking. In 1959 Peterdi authored his important book of creating fine prints, entitled Printmaking: Methods Old and New, which was very influential in the education of print makers in modern techniques of gravure.
