Celia Paul (b. 1959, India) is a renowned and original figurative painter who also works with print. Her paintings and prints are intimate portraits of people (or places) she knows well. Her mother features regularly as a sitter. This image, with her mother seated centre stage, includes a self-portrait of the artist, seen at a doorway in the background, peering tentatively from behind her mother as if she were incidental to the scene. As usual, Paul has worked with the printer Marc Balakjian using soft-ground etching to give a blurry muted quality to the printed image, capturing qualities more akin to watercolour than to etching. This plate is one of several which have been donated to the V&A through the good offices of the printer, Mark Balakjian and his partner at Studio Prints, Dorothea Wight. The V&A also has the plate for this print (see E.17-2009).
