Silverpoint painting titled red/white/blue IV by Susan Schwalb. The painting is acrylic on paper on wood and depicts layers of red, white, and blue paint coated with gray paint. The silverpoint technique was utilized to strip away some of the gray paint in horizontal stripes to reveal the layers of colored paint below.
New York-based artist Susan Schwalb embarked on her red/white/blue series in 2002, inspired by the proliferation of American flags seen throughout New York in the early aftermath of the 9/11 attacks.
