Capriccio

Capriccio was one of the artist’s favorite book projects. Completed in 1990, Capriccio represented for Baskin the ultimate collaboration between artist and poet, image and text. He felt that his own imagery complemented Hughes’s poetry harmoniously to create a finely balanced and compelling union.
