Lithograph on handmade cream paper. Edition 30: this impression 20/30. Signed by the artist, dated 1988, and numbered 20/30 lower center in pencil.

This print depicts a black dog sitting comfortably on the lawn. A low fence and a bench can be seen in the background. Plants grow along the sides of the lawn, bounded by smooth rocks. Zalopany used a photograph of her mother’s dog as the inspiration for this tender work. This finely-drawn lithograph features Zalopany’s characteristic mastery of light and shadow, from the dog’s gleaming black coat, to the sun-dappled grass.


The Artist

Michele Zalopany

Born in 1955 in Detroit Michigan, Michele Zalopany is a contemporary American artist best known for her large-scale watercolor and pastel paintings based on photographs found in digital picture collections, old books, and flea markets, etc. Found photographs and film screen shots that had originally served other purposes — family snapshots, police photos, real estate, travel documentation — when rendered, directly from the image, with traditional art materials, take on additional meanings, such as socio-psychological-political content.
