Natalie took up etching in 1964, soon after moving to London from Rome. The Central School of Art encouraged artists to embrace the full range of skills and techniques involved in printmaking. She embraced fully the opportunities of using printmaking as yet another creative medium of expression, exploring the possibilities and viewing the actual processes of printmaking as an essential element of the creative process. Natalie also taught printmaking at the City Lit and other adult education institutions. She bought her own printing press in the 1960’s and used it constantly for single prints, book works and print editions.
This is the last remaining print of this particular image, sourced directly from Natalie herself. The print is an Artist Proof, aside from the edition of 50. Fully titled, dated and signed in pencil in the bottom margin. Note this is one of a series of four Medieval Tarot card etchings undertaken by Natalie at this time…the others are The Moon, The Star and The Sun…also available, uniquely, from this website.
