About This Item

[Reynes: Editions de l'eau, 1997. One of 50 copies all on Hahnemuhle paper, each numbered and signed by Fainlight and Rothchild on the colophon: 14 deluxe copies with an original drawing and page of manuscript, 28 regular copies (this copy), 8 hors commerce. In addition, there were 40 additional copies of the mezzotints editioned. Page size: 15-1/2" x 10-1/2". Bound: loose in original wrappers, housed in red publisher's slipcase, paper over boards. New. With mezzotints printed by the artist, Judith Rothchild, the text was printed by Albert Woda, the publisher, who also designed the layout. This is Judith Rothchild's first livre d'artiste. Noted poet Ruth Fainlight has contributed a moving poem using the imagery of pomegranates and its association with the Greek myth of Persephone and Demeter to pose questions about the life process, aging, revisiting our youth, death and rebirth. Ms. Rothchild's pomegranates are rich and warm, almost supernaturally lit images -- always in pairs -- exposing its complicated fruit. The artist usually works in the pastel medium, using vibrant strong colors, usually still lifes, bringing life to inanimate objects with magical light. Encouraged by master engraver, Albert Woda, to work in mezzotints, Ms. Rothchild has created six haunting images to perfectly complement Ms. Fainlight's poem. See illustration.7.
