Description
Benson was known for his inventive approach to printmaking, always trying new techniques and often running paper through a press multiple times to achieve the richest and most resonant image he could produce. This muscular composition from the mid-1980s feels like it is from another time, with its industrial subject matter, the tiny figure on the roof, and the dark printing. The picture was made in an unspecified location during the artist’s travels on the East Coast of the United States.
