“SIMONE” INTAGLIO SERIES
The “Simone” Intaglio etching series, created in 2017, is inspired by the legendary French feminist, writer and philosopher Simone de Beauvoir. The intaglios reference a candid photograph of Simone in which you see her nude body from behind, which in some of the works is layered with text from her celebrated book, “The Second Sex”. There are 4 variations of the intaglio including with and without the text as well as variations in aqua tinting. Each of the 4 versions is hand printed with red ink on Rives cotton paper and a limited edition of 3.
