About the artwork: Peter Feldstein produced these prints using a process called cliche verre, a method of drawing on a ground-coated transparent material such as glass or film and printing the resulting image on a light sensitive paper or scanning it and printing it digitally. It is a process first practiced by a number of French painters during the early part of the 19th century. Camille Corot was the best known of these. Feldstein has developed techniques for achieving a variety of line, tone, texture and color by experimenting with paint and inks and a wide assortment of tools for etching, scratching, rubbing and daubing. In this series, the original images are also manipulated digitally.
