Additional Information about the Print

One of Jeff’s earliest experiments using cardboard as a matrix instead of the more conventional metal (copper or zinc plate); an alternative form of ‘etching’ without using acid.

The card was painted with yacht varnish, as a ‘ground’. When the varnish was dry, the motif was worked into the ground with a drypoint needle. In reworking, small additional pieces of shaped card were collaged on top of the original design, notably over the handkerchief and onion.

The bottle and vase were reworked with heavy drypoint, and carborundum powder applied with glue (the word collograph is from the Greek kol (glue) and graph (drawing)). Half tones were created by rubbing with a wire brush and sandpaper.

The card was then inked up as usual and printed on the intaglio press.
