Description
One of a series of nudes made in 1955, when Theodoropoulos was eploring the potential of the soft ground etching technique. The surface texture arising from the use of thw soft varnish resembles that of a drawing in crayon, and the use of a colour rahter like red chalkgives a finish suggestive of a drawing or a lithograph.
