‘The Old Husband‘ Softground, etching and aquatint, has been selected for this year’s exhibition. The 30x40cm two colour engraving represents a tree from a friend’s house in Chianti. The Loppio tree used to ‘get married‘ to the end of vineyards.
It was shaped so as to give a proper shape to the growing vines. I am proud this etching has been selected to take part in the prestigious biennial exhibition.
