Description

"Reclining Woman (Reposo)" is a nine color lithograph, done in 1973 and was included in the 'Mexican Masters Suite'. The image measures 20-1/4 x 26-11/16" and is pencil signed and inscribed "XX/XXV" (one of 68 proofs outside the published editions of 125) in the lower margin. This impression was published by Editions Press, San Francisco and was printed at Editions Press by the artist Master Printer Ernest de Soto on a wove, antique-white German etching paper. A reference for this is the Edition Record Document, Nov. 20 - Feb. 20, 1973, Editions Press, San Francisco, CA

This impression has the embossed chop mark of Editions Press, San Francisco in the lower left of the sheet and the embossed chop mark of the printer, also in the lower left of sheet. It is editioned in Roman numerals below image "XX/XXV". Nine colors were printed using seven plates or stones.

This is one of two images that Siqueiros did for the "Mexican Masters Suite", published and printed by Editions Press in San Francisco in 1973. The suite was composed of eight signed lithographs in colors in an edition of 125 (100 on Arches).

The hors-commerce portfolios of 25 included a bronze sculpture by Francisco Zuniga. The artists included Siqueiros, Rufino Tamayo, Jose Luis Cuevas and Francisco Zuniga. The portfolio came about largely due to the efforts of Editions Press partner and Master Printer Ernesto DeSoto.

The total printing record for this work is 193; 1 Bon a Tirer (BAT); 10 EPI (Editions Press Impressions), 25 Artist's Proofs; 25 Arabic numbered proofs; 25 Roman Numeral proofs (like this impression); 25 Hors Commerce (H.C.) Impressions, 4 Presentation Proofs (P.P.) and 3 Printer's Proofs (P.P.).
