Artist's description:

'Arise, dear Tulip, from your bed,
and show to us your every hue -
your purple, orange, pink and red.
Come, Violet, and show your blue!'

Made form an aluminium etching plate the Tulips, drawn from life, make a magnificent evocative etching that would pleasingly adorn any wall. The art of etching is traditionally the process of using strong acid or mordant to cut into the unprotected parts of a metal surface to create a design in intaglio (incised) in the metal. In modern manufacturing, other chemicals may be used on other types of material. As a method of printmaking, it is, along with engraving, the most important technique for old master prints, and remains in wide use today. In a number of modern variants such as microfabrication etching and photochemical milling it is a crucial technique in much modern technology, including circuit boards.
