Relief print from an intaglio plate in violet ink. 502x302 mm; 19 3/4x11 7/8 inches, full margins. A unique color variation, aside from the edition of 35 printed in black. Signed, dated, titled, inscribed "Unique print - 2 of 2" and with printer's instructions, lower margin. 1947.

A very good, richly inked impression.

Among Calapai's best known images, this print combines elements from his traditional study at the Art Students League, New York, with the influence of Stanley W. Hayter's Atelier 17, where Calapai worked in 1946-47.
