Witnesses by Hung Liu exemplifies her skill as a printmaker. Here, she places multiple layers of color to separate foreground from background and enhance the dimensionality of the work. Liu’s imagery was often compassionate to the children she witnessed lose their childhood years during the Cultural Revolution.
