About The Artist:

Using etching and engraving techniques, Peter Milton often spends a year or more to create his large and complex images. At Yale University under Josef Albers, Milton developed a concern less for the surface appearance of objects, but rather for the explication of their underlying, substantive qualities. Milton conveys meaning through a contextual environment of people, places, and moments in time.

Milton's imagery frequently draws on elements from the late 19th and early 20th century English and French literary world. Rendering such imagery in a rich tonal scale of black and whites, Milton captures the mood of another era as if it were viewed through a mid-century film. He cites among his major influences Ingmar Bergman and Federico Fellini. With time and reflection, a narrative in Milton's densely symbolic and historically referential images unfolds. Milton has received numerous awards for his prints, has published the book Peter Milton: Complete Prints 1960-1996, and has work in the permanent collections of major museums throughout the world.
