Description

Description: This is a wonderful mezzotint on paper, produced by Robert Kipniss in 1996. According to Kipniss, "This work explores aspects of the intimacy of semi-rural backyards in moon-light." He enjoys working with "…the relationship of houses and landscapes, particularly at the edges of small towns… where man is nearest to nature while at the same time remaining social…"

The image measures 9 3/8" x 7", and the deckle-edged sheet measures approximately 14" x 11 3/4" overall. Just below the image, the piece is signed and numbered in pencil "Kipniss" and "124/150." Is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity from The Print Club of Albany; this was their "annual print for 1995-1996." Item #PR00049
