Joan Snyder experimented with the color used in this image, printing it in various combinations before settling on the one seen here.

Description

Joan Snyder is among the most avid and committed printmakers of the Women’s Art Movement, a loosely formed group of feminist artists active beginning in the late 1960s. Prints such as this explore issues related to womanhood through both personal and universal imagery and text. Here, Snyder used abstract, painterly forms to evoke a pond, which she tied broadly to the transitions of life, such as death and growth.
