An Etching from a Zinc Plate

This is an etching that I made back in
1977, while I was in grad school. It was
drawn with a metalpoint on a zinc plate that was coated with
a waxy varnish and then immersed in acid
"Betrayal", 3x5 inches.
to "bite" the plate.  The plate was then
inked and put through a printing press.
Although it is not a metalpoint I feel the
relationship.
