FULL TITLE WITH PUNCTUATION is The Moon, Rose, Sorrow or Hidden Faces from My Future. This is PRINT NUMBER TWO OVER FIVE EDITION TWO OF FOUR. Printmaking, Etching Intaglio, Chine colle. This etching was inspired by a photograph I took in 1987 on the side of Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, France. Later that day and while standing on the Seine while watching the cathedral at dusk from the Left Bank I began to cry. My traveling companion, a Cuban poet-in-exile, asked what was wrong. I responded that our midnight train to Barcelona would take us from this beautiful city, and that we would never see this site again. He insisted that we would return and tried to ease my anxieties. His death a few years later prevented us from ever traveling to that magical spot again. TECHNICAL INFORMATION.
