This work was made when Hughie O'Donoghue was Artist in Residence at The National Gallery in London.
The image was made in an alloy of hard-ground and then dry-point. It combines direct biting with acid and softer-edged pools of oil of spike. 20 state proofs were made before the final state. This was printed in two tones, warm and cool. The complexity was such that each impression varies.
