Ernestine's last show at Stevnson was maybe a year ago? But I'm sure it
was only gums... in fact wait a minute, here it is from the caption of a
photo in an article in, you should pardon the expression, Post-Factory #9,
page 43: The show was Sept 10 - Oct 18, 2003, all gum prints. The papers
she uses, it says here, are Merten Speisse, BFK Rives, and BFK Rives
Moulin du Gue (aka (Rives de Lin). (Of these, my favorite is the Merten
Spiesse.)

At the time the article was written www.johnstevenson-gallery.com was
showing a bunch of Ruben's gums. I assume it does still.
