Literature: Margot Fürst, HAP Grieshaber. The Prints. Catalog raisonné. 1966-1981, Vol. II, Stuttgart 1984, No. 69/7

In the depiction of the (expectant) "mother," to which HAP Grieshaber repeatedly refers (1952, 1964, and 1969), the female figure filling almost the entire sheet format contrasts with the baby pushed to the lower edge, as if locked in a cage. Such a bold composition may be due to the ambivalence of human existence, in which wonder and happiness are interwoven in an inseparable symbiosis with fears and pain inherent in all being.
