It is the biggest etching by Hayter and probably the most important print by the artist in black and white. This etching was awarded prize by the Museum of Modern Art of New York in 1952.

Desiree Moorhead wrote about Tropic of Cancer : "Tropic of Cancer from 1949 is the largest plate undertaken by Hayter, and in its coherent arrangement of line and form the use of texture has become as important a part of the image as the engraved line itself"

Peter Black wrote about this etching : "Hayter's plates of the mid-1940s are much larger than the works of the 1930s and they approach a scale (especially Tropic of Cancer from 1949) than was then unusual for original etching or engraving. As the images reached the limits of scale appropriate to Hayter's burin lines, large sculptural areas of soft ground texture began to play an important part in the defining shapes. Tropic of Cancer is certainly not large in comparison with some reproductive engravings of the nineteenth century although it is on a scale altogether much larger than typical etchings by Hayter's contemporaries. It works well precisely because, like the great reproductive engravings, it relies heavily on tonal devices".
