Frank Auerbach in his studio with a portrait of Colin Wiggins
Part of a series of prints in which Wiggins invited artists to collaborate with him in making a portrait print of each other on the same plate. Auerbach etched the portrait of Wiggins seen on the easel. The setting is the Camden Town studio that has been Auerbach's base as an artist since 1954.
