About this Image:
The Chilean Suite consists of ten black and white woodcuts. The scenes in each woodcut depict the rural life and majestic mountain landscapes that Robinson encountered on a trip to Chile. Robinson has a unique style and uncanny ability to capture the vitality and emotion of her subjects, and Chilean Suite is imbued with a subtle sense of the unity of all peoples. These are the first prints of Robinson’s prints published at RBPMW since her initial foray into printmaking with Robert Blackburn in the early 1980’s.
