About artist/note:

"The texture of the background is particularly remarkable. It is obtained by irregular absorption of the ink into a sheet of crinkled and folded paper, which then transfers its textured traces on to the actual print before the impression of the subject."

Patrick Furneaux, Leo Rosshandler, Arts of the Eskimo: Prints, Signum Press, Montreal, 1974, page 28
