Color etching and aquatint on Fabriano paper, 1971. 610x453 mm; 24x17 7/8 inches, full margins. Signed, dated and numbered 44/65 in pencil, lower margin. A very good impression of this scarce print with strong colors.

According to Associated American Artists, "While the discs pulsate in the upper portion of the Bursts, configurations of brush strokes erupt below. Deeply bitten arc-like surfaces of the brush strokes . . . suggest a more unpredictable and violent action than the glowing pulsations of the discs . . . Gottlieb (1903-1974) posits two vital and opposing forces. And while each has the potential to subsume the other, he has discovered a unifying structure that allows them to function in a relationship of complementary equilibrium."
