Once We Were Two Smoothies

G’it L’il Doggie

Mr. & Mrs.
1963, mixed intaglio, 20 x 15¾ in.

In the intaglio print, Mr. & Mrs., I try to make a criticism of married couples and have compassion for them at the same time. Technically, the problem was how to fuse a deeply-pitted zinc plate printed in black and white with the warm brown into which it was printed. I wanted to have the stark and gentle, criticism and goodwill merge.   —CK
