Description
This unique piece appears to feature two techniques: lithography, being the main image in color; and intaglio, printed in black, as evidenced by a very fine, embossed repeat pattern down the left-hand length of the sheet. On the verso, evidence of these two matrices show faintly. This print came from the collection of noted printmaker Dick Swift, though whether Roth was a student of his remains uncertain. However, the experimental aspects of this print, along with Roth's own sophisticated hand, would suggest that she was a dedicated student of the printmaking art.
