About this artwork

Vera Berdich’s prints frequently incorporate elements of mystery and the subconscious mind. About this print, Berdich wrote, “I felt that in this particular etching I had achieved some technical advancement especially in the combining of a varied number of techniques. In the subject matter too, there was a stronger identity with the surreal and fantastic, in that the subject deals with the elements of time, memory, change, and the caprice of fate.” Beginning in 1947, Berdich vastly improved the curriculum and facilities for intaglio at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, leaving a legacy that continues to this day.
