Print by William Evertson: Samuel Beset by Durer's Witch, available at Childs Gallery, Boston

William Evertson

Samuel Beset by Durer's Witch, 2023
Color woodblock

Number 3 in an edition of 12. Numbered, titled, signed, and dated in the lower margin. A fine impression in fine condition, printed from three carved blocks. 


Artist’s Note: 
Justice Alito’s rationale for overturning Roe v Wade invoked Sir Matthew Hale, a 17th century jurist, seen lurking on the right, noted for his misogyny and presiding over witch trials. The putti impede Samuel’s flight from the witch, one offering a fish, a reference to his luxurious patronage from donors.

Signature: lower right margin
