Happy National Rooster Day! Did you miss our Kingdom Animalia exhibit? Here is one last post about our "Animals in Print"! We are celebrating with Beth Van Hoesen’s print "Boris". To create her animal prints, Van Hoesen studied her subjects persistently until she was able to perfectly express the creature’s personality. She has done such with Boris, rendering his feathers, comb, wattle, and especially the eye, with meticulous precision.
Beth Van Hoesen, Boris, 1981, color aquatint, etching, and drypoint with roulette, with scraping of the support, hand colored with watercolor on moderately thick, moderately textured white wove paper, Beth Van Hoesen, 2007.60.247
