Penitente Prayer - GENE KLOSS
Medium: drypoint and aquatint
Drypoint and aquatint, 1937, Sanchez 349, edition 25. 11 x 14 in. Signed and titled in pencil. This is a superb impression with full margins. The tonalities in the sky are beautifully rendered evoking an intensely spiritual image. The condition is fine apart from a minor soft wrinkle in the extreme upper left corner of the margin. This is an early, uncommon print. According to Phillips Kloss, "prayer was the humble aspect of the Penitente rituals..." (See page 32 of Gene Kloss Etchings (1981).
