Bill Ritchie's art in Washington State
in the

Duke Washington Collection


Target and Water

Specifications: Intaglio, etching, engraving and drypoint on copper plate. Black, GC&IC image 3 1/2 X 3 5/8 in on 8 3/8 X 8 3/4 in Rives BFK. No. State Proof I preceding an Edition of 10. Signed lower right as BR.

Artist comment: This proof is of the first state leading up to the edition. I was working on achieving the "perfect target heart" reflection, but I also like the early states because they--like much of printmaking--provide a history of their own making.  Duke Washington has two other works from the target series, not shown on this page.
