Desiree Moorhead wrote about the print "Maternity" : "In 1940, Hayter made his first colour print, "Maternity", combining an engraved plate with silkscreens. It was a composite print with sikscreens colours printed first on to the sheet over which the engraved plate was then printed in black. It was a combersome and laborious printing process but reawakened Hayter's intense interest in colour printing."

Desirée Moorhead wrote about Falling Fugure by Hayter : "Falling figure, made in 1947 in New York, has sometimes been criticized as being unclear and overburdened with colours, but this is precisely where its interest lies. Appart from the black intaglio, five surface colours were applied through silkscreens on to the plate, Hayter's desire being to experiment with a highly saturated field of overlapping colour. Teh idea was ambitious if not wholly successful, as on the print areas are visible where the viscosity of certain inks breaks down. Through the uneven edges of the screens it is possible to see the effects of green over blue, giving a dark petrol blue effect bordered by a straight blue, then a yellow over green and a black over blue area".
