Description

From the portfolio of 22 etchings by 22 artists, titled "Voice and Visions: A Book of Poems and Etchings." Printed by the Fort Mason Printmakers in San Francisco under the direction of Eleanor Rappe, each work was inspired by a poem of the artist's choice, corresponding to their assigned category: Part I, Of Love and Loss; Part II, Upon the Earth; Part III, Under the Heavens; Part IV, Journeys of the Mind; and Part V, Metamorphoses.

This print is from the third category: Under the Heavens. Its corresponding poem was "The Invitation" by Percy Bysshe Shelley:

When the night is left behind, / In the deep east, dim and blind, / And the blue noon is over us, / And the multitudinous / Billows murmur at our feet, / Where the earth and ocean meet, / And all things seem only one / In the universal Sun.
