Footnotes

  • The image of houses on a hill references the work of Cézanne, though the pure abstract forms transcend those of early Cubism. The eye can pick out facades and rooftops, but the compact pyramidal shape, constructed of hard lines and sharp angles and devoid of architectural details, gives the appearance of one geometric form.

    There was also an edition printed in green and black.
