Description

The looming, dramatic figure of Don Qixote is wonderfully recreated in this mixed-technique print. Dean Meeker recieved a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1959, which he used to travel to Paris to study at the studios of Mourlot and LeCouriers, and Atelier 17.

In Paris, he studied the methods that Hayter and the workshop were known for, and eventually began exploring the possibilities in combining serigraphy and intaglio techniques. His fascination with polymer intaglio and its ability to create embossment is shown in the textures on the figure's clothes.
