When I originally became interested in Jeff Koons’ work I was intrigued by his attitude towards art and I found I could relate to a lot of his ideas. I decided that for my final intaglio assignment of copying a work of art, I would try to depict Warhol’s influence on Koons’ work. I decided to base my print off of Jeff Koons’ “Hand on Breast” from his “Made in Heaven” series, with “Rabbit” serving as a backdrop. I felt the image would equate the idea of influence to intimacy. I used two plates for the print. One holds “Rabbit” the other a contour line drawing. Both plates were etched with hard ground for the line work. The “Rabbit” plate was aquatinted and chin-colle was used to attach the yellow tissue paper to the second plate.
