Sugar Lift Ground Aquatint and Engraving, 1957, Ed. 30, H. 197, 17-3/4 x 29-5/8, signed, titled and numbered 30 imp. in pencil, on thin grayish chine colle on a warm white wove Whatman watermarked support sheet, marginal rippling to sheet from hinging, and strips of brown kraft paper water tape to edges from stretching and drying after printing. There was also an Ed. of 15 printed in relief. A large and impressive subject akin to Kohn's famous "Tiger", his "Lion" too has a fierce presence, but is more rhythmic with it's boldly swirling calligraphic lines standing up in relief from the printed surface. A fine and rich impression of this magnifcent print, in a small edition, and a masterwork by the artist.
