This print is from one of two editions of etchings, which were first Chris Gollon ever made. They were produced by the artist at the Glasgow Print Studio in 1996. This is ‘The Whisper (I)’ an etching with aquatint made whilst working with master printmaker Murray Robertson. The image was concurrent with Gollon’s acclaimed Road to Narragonia series of paintings, some of which were shown at the Glasgow Art Fair in the same year. ‘The Whisper (II)’ was slightly smaller, hand-coloured and an edition of 20. The two images are mentioned in the 2010 biography ‘Chris Gollon: Humanity in Art’ by art historian Tamsin Pickeral (Hyde & Hughes), endorsed by Bill Bryson OBE.
