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 "A Hummingbird" by Emily Dickinson:

A Route of evanescence / With a revolving wheel; / A resonance of emerald, / A rush of cochineal; / And every blossom on the bush / Adjusts its tumbled head, -- / The mail from Tunis, probably, / An easy morning's ride.
