Description

This impression is an early example of Alps' abstract printmaking using various intaglio techniques which Alps evolved into collagraphy, adding objects and materials to the surface of the plate and printing using a combination of intaglio and relief.

There is a crease in the paper in the left center, through the body and wing of the chicken at the left and the artist's 2 hand prints on the verso, in blue ink.
