Bill Ritchie's work in the

Wave Square School Scroll

1979. Print. Chine colle, sienna ink on white, gold infusion paper from etched copper with Van Gelder Zonen buff backing. 24 1/4 X 11 1/2 in. backing with. 12 X 9 in. plate mark. 5 proofs. Signed lower right.

Artist's comment: A while after I finished editioning Wave Square School for Sam Davidson Galleries, I experimented with different papers and printing methods. The gold infusion paper was seductive and my interest in Asian scrolls inspired this version. It was very hard to print and I made only five.
