Bill Ritchie's art in the
Lela Abravenel Collection
"Ideogram 4 - III"
1966. Intaglio. Etching and drypoint on copper. Black ink on white. Image 6 1/4 X 4 3/4 in. on 8 X 6 3/8 in. Rives BFK. No 3/5. Signed lower right.
Artist Comment: The microscopic world of living things under, in and around trees seems like a fitting combination for the needle-point fine lines attainable in etching on copper. The night-black tones you can get with aquatint add the to what appear to be mysteries of nature and printmaking effects.
