About this artwork

Transfer lithographs are made on a sheet of prepared paper that is run through the press to attach the image to the stone or plate. The rippled effect seen throughout this print results from an incomplete transfer of the original drawing to the printing matrix. Beckman capitalized on the resulting rough surface, creating an image out-of-character from his typically sharp-focused draftsmanship.
