About this artwork

Jim Nutt studied various graphic media during his time at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC), but he was most inspired by the tiny etchings of James Ensor and Paul Klee, both of whom were prolific printmakers. Between 1967 and 1970 Nutt created numerous small etchings in the style seen here, some of which were printed by his friends Philip Hanson and Christina Ramberg in the print studio at SAIC.
