Description: Very fine and rich impression on wove paper with good, probably full, margins, signed and numbered 1/75 in pencil. The scene is of a barefoot traveler, seen from the back, seated on the ground in a flat landscape, a wheelbarrow at the distant left, a village at the distant right. Komjati made the print while studying with Malcolm Osborne in England on a grant from the Hungarian government. Malcom Salaman wrote of the print: "Morning, the principal plate of 1929, is beautiful with its simplicity of expression. The half-reclining body of the vagrant is sensitively drawn, and exquisite the expression of the morning light over the landscape." Komjati's grim experiences as a prisoner of war strongly influenced virtually all his later work.
