Notes

Produced in 1990, Little Morals is a series of eight etchings – each exquisitely hand coloured – which began as a collaboration between Robert Hodgins, Deborah Bell and William Kentridge, whilst working together for a short period of time at Caversham Press in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands. The plot [unfolding in the series] is a simple one: a husband suspects his wife of an affair. He discovers them together. He shoots her in a fit of rage and jealousy, and finally presents her lover, who is a boxer, with one of her shoes as cold comfort.
