OHIO---Sean Scully's etchings for Federico García Lorca juxtapose the poetry of the Spanish poet, are now on view at the Cincinnati Art Museum. The artist immerses himself in the Humanistic tradition of literature and art by using the text as his muse to create his images. These prints should not be viewed as illustrations but as independent works that celebrate the expressive character of printmaking through colors and luminosity.
