As I was posting a blog about choreographer, Susan Vencl, on SNAPSHOTS today, I recalled the print above - a combination woodcut and cardboard cut.
Inspired by my plaster sculpture of Degas's 'La danse espagnole' throwing shadows on the wall - the woodcut, a relief technique (see comment), enabled me to cut the negative areas for the shadows, and the cardboard cut-out enabled me to impose the dancer in the foreground. The center panel is a portrait of the artist himself.
For Degas fans, an interesting read is DEGAS, The Artist's Mind by Theodore Reff (1987)
