Description
The title of this intaglio translates to English as "Locomotive Hell." The plate was deeply bitten and has a three dimensional quality that adds to the drama. Louttre used a combination of etching and woodblock to achieve this effect. Louttre is the son of artist Roger Bissière (1888-1964). For more information on the artist click on "biography" above.
