Description: The print depicts a group of six white rats. Five of them are clustered together on the upper left part of the print while the sixth one is left alone, turning its back to the spectator, and taking all the foreground space.

Very interesting how the figuration is successful through the simplicity of trace. No perspective or color palette was needed for the representation of the animals, only simple monochrome lines using the white paper itself as a filler and they tell the whole story ...


This print is slightly toned.
