This print comes from Jones' first print portfolio of eight lithographs called 'Concerning Marriages' from 1964.
The series was influenced by Friedrich Nietzsche’s writings which suggested that creativity was powered by erotic relationships. Jones’ prints illustrate this exchange between the sexes. The central figure in this print is a hybrid of the couple who appear throughout the series. It combines the woman’s bright clothing and the man’s fedora hat.
