  • Catalogue Essay

    The making of this monumental intaglio print was facilitated by Valter Rossi from 2RC Editions, Rome, who enabled Moore to use a special press near his summer home. The scale and complexity of the printing techniques draws many parallels to his sculptural works - in forms and fabrication.
