Mariano Villegas - Yelmos del Agua [Lim.ed. nº 2 de 30] - 1988

Magnificent collection with 15 hand-colored etchings by the Spanish artist Mariano Villegas entitled Yelmos del Agua. It is presented inside a wooden case box. The etchings represent a series of different marine crustaceans. Edition made by the artist himself, very reduced, only 25 copies, this being the number 2 we present. It is, therefore, a series of etchings very difficult to find complete.
Inside the box comes an extensive resume of the artist.
- Mariano Villegas (Madrid, 1949) is an artist who stands out for his skill in drawing and composition, which he uses to create intimate and realistic works. The artist acknowledges that, despite the realism of his painting, he does not seek to become "a hunter of the moment", but instead seeks to capture "the climate of what happens" in each of his compositions.

It will be sent perfectly packaged and with additional insurance.
