Woodcut on wove paper. Inscribed H.C. and signed in pencil by the artist. Printed and published by Erker-Presse St. Gallen. Rainer Michael Masson who wrote the catalogue raissoné of Hartung’s prints doesn’t mention any proofs with the inscription H.C. so maybe it was added by another hand to the present copy. The numbering H-1-1976 suggests that Hartung planned another series of woodcuts (with larger formats) in 1976 but in fact this is the only woodcut executed in this year (and the last one in Hartung’s oeuvre) . All other prints in 1976 were lithographs.
