The first two pieces really demonstrate the drama for which Eichenberg is so well known. They use the optical drama of black and white to create a sense of psychological drama - in the first piece, suspense and foreboding, and in the second, sympathy and awe. (And I picked the third piece just because it goes with the Word of the Month.)
I don’t have so many other E printmakers, but Escher alone should keep you plenty busy…
