Points of Departure III (Twentieth Century Limited)
Peter Milton (1930- ) is one of the foremost contemporary printmakers in the United States. Milton’s prints are unique in the depiction of highly detailed images achieved through the creation of remarkably subtle line, texture and tone. Despite his use of representational subject matter, his enigmatic compositions are imaginary and thus defy interpretation from any single point of view. The delicate balance between the real and the imagined has enabled Milton to create haunting images rich in opportunities for repeated exploration.
