|Stag 5x4 linocut & watercolor|
This linocut is a small edition of 10, printed with Akua Waterbased ink on Johannot paper and painted with watercolor.
Andrew Wyeth remembered an evening, one of the rare ones he had spent in New York, with a group of painters at Robert Beverly Hale's. Jackson Pollock and Stuart Davis had been arguing about techniques. Finally, Edward Hopper tapped Davis on the shoulder and pointed from the penthouse window to the incredible light of the setting sun on the buildings. "Can you ignore that?"
