Description
The precision and tonal balance of Drewes' "Circular Motion" print belies his background in architecural design. Though his time at Atelier 17 in 1944 was largely experimental, his sense of design and understanding of the complexities of multi-technique intaglio printmaking made his work pop with energy.
