Enchanting Forest (GL106), Licata’s design for Swatch, is inked with rows of tree-like figures, each of which shines with calligraphic elegance. These sea green, sky-blue, and twilight-purple silhouettes are lined on the left with red shadows, a visual touch that implies a setting or rising sun, low to the horizon to the right of the image. This suggestion of light-and-shade brings a sense of the outdoors to the arboreal scene. A translucent green case around the dial draws out the greens in the pattern, while the red buckle reiterates the red shadows of the tree forms, bringing out the stylish wilderness of this work by a master printmaker.
