Sometimes I Feel Like a Motherless Child (1978-79)

AKA Motherless Child

Wood Engraving

Dale DeArmond

Edition of 50

Edition of A/P: 6

Paper type: off-white Japanese

Image size: 2 ½" x 2 ⅝"

Note: this was one of DeArmond's first printed wood engravings.

The print is a portrait bust of a walrus who looked so lugubrious that I gave it that very long name. This is a wood engraving, which is something quite different from a woodcut. It is done with engraving tools on very hard end-grain wood – boxwood in this case.

Original price: $15.00
