Description
Exploring the potential of drypoint, this print by French abstract artist Albert Gleizes shows Cubist influences. With a figure discernable at center, the composition is broken up in to flattened picture planes, delineated by different lines – vertical, diagonal, crosshatched, curved – to ground the image. By leaving some areas of the plate untouched and others highly worked, the result is both pictorial and textural.
