Title

A vision for builders

1975


Artist

Jan Senbergs

Australia, Latvia

29 Oct 1939 -


About

"This is kind of a stage set, I suppose – a lot of activity, of structures and these two pieces in the middle, that curved path that comes in – it loops in from one side and links the pieces together. It's a device to create a touch of asymmetry. I think it’s one of my better prints."

Jan Senbergs
[Hendrik Kolenberg, Jan Senbergs complete screenprints 1960-88, pg 68]
