"Leda and the Swan" by Reuben Nakian, Etching and Chine Colle, c. 1980

This piece is seventh in his series depicting the myth Leda and the Swan. Here we see Leda turning away from the advances of the swan who nips at her hair. Though rendered in only a few strokes, artist Reuben Nakian is able to capture her discomfort and the movement involved in this scene. Nakian was an American artist best known for his modernist sculpture, engaging with psychology through his depictions of myths and abstracted female forms. This etching on chine colle paper is signed and numbered and framed in black and gold wood, inset with a white mat with gold bevel. Edition: IV/XXV.
