Did You Know?

This work was made during a year when Nicole Eisenman focused primarily on mastering various printmaking techniques.

Description

This print by Nicole Eisenman references the German Expressionist artist Erich Heckel’s 1919 woodcut Portrait of a Man. Eisenman reversed the direction of the original image but adapted the sideways glance and clasped hands seen in the elder artist’s print. In the upper right corner, she added a small moon, and printed the two sides of the image in black and white, suggesting that the figure is outside looking in.
