Turning over a new leaf.
Hand coloured etching, sheet 135 x 100mm. 5¼ x 4".
Self-portrait; the artist sits on a stool, his head bandaged, writing in a book inscribed '1947'. He is surrounded by etched lettering in reverse. The Latin American artist Joaquin Macias is known to have lived in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and Nicaragua, and to have visited Chile in 1951. In a hand written note discovered with a group of his etchings, he mentions a period of "30 years residence" in Britain. He seems to have etched most of his plates in the 1930s, 40s and 50s.
