According to Felix Harlan of Harlan & Weaver, this composition was created using an experimental combination of printmaking techniques. First, the source painting was photographed and transferred to a silkscreen. Second, the image was silkscreened onto a copper plate using a sugar lift solution. Then the plate was processed as a traditional sugar lift aquatint.
