Don Lent, American (b. 1933)
“I love to draw, to make lines that both describe what I'm seeing and express what I'm feeling,” says printmaker Don Lent, and this fascination with line is clear in the etchings on view here. These four works are part of a series of ten studies of plants, animals, and insects, each showing his trademark fluid quality and excitement for line. Often focusing on the subject with few strokes to note the background, Lent gives emphasis on the sensibility of the form.
