Gouache 3
The Stair

In the woods of Umbria I found a dilapidated house, which was used as a hiding place by partisans in
World War II, a place well done to inscend my fantasies.  I etched the old stair to the upper part in a
perspective, that it seemed to end in the sky, the right place for all kind of visions! All things located
there became a mysterious appearance.  I loved especially the contrast of the more open printed
etching and the very exactly painting on it.
