Review Auction No. 242
Photography, Prints & Editions
Two in James Coignards etchings from the 1980s, which feature in this auction, are evidence of the haptic possibilities when working with carborundum. With a striking play of light, photographer Frantisek Drtikol deals with the female form in a bromoil print, which was created around 1930. A small silver plated bronze pendant of a faceless muse designed Giorgio de Chirico, displays his typical, mysterious style, and Pop artists of the younger generation are represented by Steve Kaufman, with his overpainted serigraph on canvas.
