Description

This color mezzotint by Byron McClintock titles this abstracted landscape "Susanville Sunrise". Susanville, originally called 'Rooptown', is a city of around 18,000 residents located on the Susan River in Lassen County in Northeastern California. Susanville originally was a mining and logging town but now is home to two state prisons, its main source of income.

Oregon born and now Portland resident, printmaker/painter Byron McClintock was an important part of the abstract expressionist movement in San Francisco in the 1950s. His printmaking was re-discovered in the early 1990's by New York AbEx print collector Charles Dean. Byron began working in printmaking again, this time using color mezzotint, roulette and drypoint.
