Description

African-American printmaker Benjamin Leroy Wigfall studied printmaking at Yale University with Gabor Peterdi. He got his M.A. and spent many years teaching at the State University of New York (SUNY) in New Paltz.

Benjamin Wigfall cut this plate into the heart-like shape and used various intaglio techniques to create a universe within the form, including adding elements to the surface of the plate to create three dimensional areas. He printed this proof in black, others were printed in colors. He did not edition this image.
