On view is an abstract engraving by the artist that features both relief and intaglio printing. The work on view is one of the 15 Swan Engravings Stella has created with master printer Ken Tyler. The title of the series refers to the Swan Engraving Company of Bridgeport, Connecticut, a commercial printing company that cuts and engraves the shapes Stella uses in his large magnesium constructions.
