Terry Winters. Fourteen Etchings 7. 1989

Terry Winters Fourteen Etchings 7 1989

  • Not on view

The portfolio format has always had a central position in Winters's printed work, allowing him to extend his systemic thinking into natural series. At Bill Goldston's suggestion Winters tried etching in 1988 and completed this unusual portfolio the following year. Using different etching techniques he contrasts photographic and hand-drawn modes of image-making, setting up oppositional pairs: figurative versus abstract, human versus celestial, and interior versus exterior.

How we identified these works

In 2018–19, MoMA collaborated with Google Arts & Culture Lab on a project using machine learning to identify artworks in installation photos. That project has concluded, and works are now being identified by MoMA staff.
