Half-Past Ten (Separate Tables)
Covey, Rosemary Feit, 1954- , American
trial proof 1ed. 120The man in the sweater represents Covey's former husband, Paul. The woman in the foreground represents Covey even though the facial features have been altered. The original working title for the print was "Separate Tables." A customer suggested "Half-Past Ten." One proof has "Separate Tables" misspelled "Seperate Tables." This trial proof is believed to be the first full block trial proof of this print. A very few other trial proofs exist, but most have been gone over with white ink as Covey made changes in the block. In this proof the candle flame, man's forehead, man's sweater, woman's dress, and woman's left cheek have not yet been lightened.Woman with back to man, and other patrons, seated at restaurant tables.
