2 colors (including 1 colored paper) printed in 2 steps from 1 copper plate: 1. black – plate (on Rives BFK paper); 2. Japanese paper adhered to Rives BFK paper (chine collé)
The black plate for this print was made in 1974. The collage element of red Japanese paper was added in 1978 and looks like a comb. This effect was achieved by pressing a piece of cardboard into the soft-ground of the etching plate.
