Description

Japanese born and educated Shoichi Hasegawa became interested in the lyrical abstract works of American artists Jackson Pollock, Franz Kline, Mark Rothko and Morris Graves. He left Japan in 1961 and traveled to Paris where he worked with experimental printmaking techniques with S.W. Hayter at Atelier 17.

This large color intaglio explores the intaglio processes developed at Atelier 17, using the plate to achieve an intimate, calligraphic composition in which the uninked white line dances on the surface of the color.
