Using just a few expressive curves, Dargis has abstracted the essence of the harpist’s engagement with her instrument. He used the medium of the woodcut technique to his advantage in creating, with a few simple lines, the strings of the harp and the texture of the harpist’s skin. In this print he also employed the collagraph technique, in which a part of the image (in this case the harpist’s dress) are impressions of textured materials glued to a cardboard or metal base.
