Description

This is a superb impression of this unique work. The margins are full and the condition is fine. This exceptional print is from the artist's 2010 "Nike" series in which he draws directly from nature on the copper plate and prints an edition of only one impression. These "plein air" drypoints were done in the forests around Vienna and demonstrate the artist's exceptional skills as a draughtsman. Inspired by the work of Rembrandt, Demus here shows remarkable freedom with the copper plate and the prints from this series are a notable departure from his more restrained and detailed prints from the 1980s. Nike refers to the Greek goddess of victory. The prints from this series are all titled with the names of women.
