A collector's thoughts, "The tonality of a Dominic Rouse print is quite exquisite. The shadow through highlight detailing and the velvet-like quality of the surface are all masterfully executed. His prints have a tactile quality which adds another dimension to his imagery. We can feel the silk of 'Angeline's' ribbons, the smoothness of the pearls sewn into her dress, and the impending danger and grime of her environs." (Susan Seiller - Louisville USA)
