"Self-portrait" with head offered on a tray. Mixed media: edited screen print with gouache, and collage.
Original work from the 1960s (ca. 1965).
Signed with the following accompanying words: "Van den tijd dat ik nog beroemd was en zal blijven, yours.”
Szukalski was in the 1970s member of the ZERO-movement and worked among others with Gunther Uecker, Jef Verheyen, Paul Van Hoeydonck, and later also with his good friend J.M.H. Berckmans. He was best known for his "ghosts", hollow castings in polyester of well-known or fictional characters, which are given a mysterious, sculptural allure.
His monumental work "The Last Supper" that he built in Dead Valley (USA) became an American landmark.
Work by him is in various museums and collections as well as in the Middelheim in Antwerp.
Due to the fragility of the framed work, it’s best collected. Other options can of course also be agreed upon.
