Gibbings's use of the "vanishing line technique" is clearly illustrated in this print which was "his first significant engraving of a figure. Here the delicate outline of the body is never defined by a line other than the boundary of one area of highlight with that of shadow; the eye naturally completes the shape by implication...Gibbings used the technique in much of his early work around the time when he started to become a serious contender in the art world."
