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 fourth category: Journeys of the Mind. Its corresponding poem was the fifth piece from "Impressions" by e.e. cummings:

stinging / gold swarms / upon the spires / silver / chants the litanies the / great bells are ringing with rose / the lewd fat bells / and a tall / wind / is dragging / the / sea / with / dream / -S
