Lithograph print titled 2001, created by Brenda Berkman (b. 1951). The print depicts a self-portrait of Berkman standing with her hands covering her head. The print is signed.
This self-portrait created by Brenda Berkman expresses her witness to the collapse of the North Tower on September 11. Along with this portrait, a series of prints titled 36 Views of One World Trade Center follows construction of the new One World Trade Center building from 36 vantage points around the city. For Berkman, printmaking became a path through the trauma she had experienced on 9/11 and in the subsequent months that she spent at Ground Zero.
