Monotype on white paper. Signed by the artist, annotated “IC”, and dated 1988 lower right in pencil.
Here, a group of children is bundled up in hats, gloves, and jackets. This monotype features Zalopany’s characteristic mastery of light and dark, from the bright winter sunlight catching the children’s hats, to the knit texture of their gloves in shadow. The heart patterns on the children’s hats and scarves are a tender addition to this intimate portrait. In Children, bright white paper sets off Zalopany’s dimensional drawing style. The translucency of the ink is showcased by the artist’s loose, painterly brush strokes, which create rich layers of color and texture.
