Description

Krishna Reddy commented on this print in Krishna Reddy: A Retrospective, Bronx Museum of Arts, 1981:

"In this plate I tried to realize the maximum effect of pure color juxtaposition by the pointillist and broken color process. To this end I had to develop new ways and means. I superimposed a series of aquatint areas as one from light to dark as one would normally proceed for printing in black and white, but this time it was to realize variosu intensities and combinations of colors. This was my most successful print at the time for conveying the power and spontaneity of expression, using pointillist and broken colors in printing.

"A row of receding, vertical lines were constructed which proceeded to turn into more and more organic shapes of figures until finally opening up into a fully radiating human figure."
