In her own words...
Now the discovery is Georges Visat, master etcher. Up two flights of worn steps to reach a room crowded with etching presses, three of them. The handles and their big wheels are thickened with years of etchers' black ink. Some of the same will soon ink my second etching, two dancers scratched into a tiny copper plate. One of them is a dog (my dog) who, over the years, shows up in many avatars, as constant as a talisman.
