John L. Doyle. Acupuncturist. 69/150. Lithograph. The approximate paper size is 20" x 16" and the image size is 16" x 11". The lithograph was acquired with the full suite in l981. The lithograph is signed and numbered in pencil. This work is a monochrome lithograph, black ink with exquisite depth of color, and color gradations and drawing detail, on handsome handmade light yellow paper, with beautiful deckled edges. The paper on which this art is printed is worthy of note. Created by Roland Poska, master printer and paper-maker, it is rich and complex in its combination of unusual color and texture. It is stunning art in itself. Poska talks about the paper's deckle edges and explains they too are intended to be evocative of the messages in the Doyle images. Poska says that for him the paper mirror's the concept of a rough unfinished part of man's relationship of man to nature. This handmade paper, similar to that relationship, looks rough and unfinished. The relationship is a kind of work in progress. Poska explains this life philosophy and his art paper saying forces meet and part - like the "deckle", or irregular edge of the paper. "...Nature is one huge deckle edge...in man's relations [with it] forces collide...you have to work out a balance...[or]...deckle edge...".

The cathedral is known throughout the Catholic world for its collection of religious and secular art, including the original decorative work by Constantino Brumidi, who also decorated the United States Capitol dome.
