About this Piece

"Victory the Celebration" was started in February of 1991 by Levers. He was responding to the invasion of Kuwait by Iraq and the US counter-invasion into Iraq, known as Operation Desert Storm, in which lives were lost and the oil fields were set ablaze. The soft ground etching was proofed and made ready for editioning by the late spring and the edition finished and signed in December 1991. This impression is signed as a the single printer's proof.

About the Artist

Robert Levers (American 1930-1991) was a senior faculty member in painting at the University of Texas at Austin. His lithographs and etchings exhibit the same wry humor and extraordinary draftsmanship as his fantastic oil paintings. Levers was a National Endowment for the Arts Fellow in 1976 and 1984. He was included in the American exhibition at the Venice Bienale in 1984, and had a retrospective exhibition at Laguna Gloria Art Museum in 1991.
