Abram Krol - Zodiaques

Description
Abram Krol - Zodiaques
Etching, Lithograph - Hand signed - 24/26

Abram Krol (1919-2001), Polish engraver, combines the techniques of chisel and colour aquatint on Richard de Bas paper. This Focus highlights the atypical career of an artist whose primary vocation was civil engineering. He arrived in Paris during the Second World War, he met Joseph Hecht (1891-1951), master of the chisel. The latter taught him the art of engraving according to principles of rigour, line economy and sobriety of composition. These five works, bought by the state in 1959 and 1963, are resolutely departing from the austerity of classical chisels and are similar in their rendering and form to popular imagery.
