TONY SCHERMAN "BOUQUET" AQUATINT, 2001
Tony Scherman (b. 1950) is one of the most collected and cherished Canadian artists.
The artist is renowned internationally for his work, typically executed in encaustic (one of the most difficult medium to work in).
Scherman's moody palette and sumptuous figurative subjects (whether contemporary, historical or allegorical) reference Goya and Manet.
Peonies are one of Scherman's preferred flowers. He has repeatedly depicted them on canvas, on paper and in graphics.
This work, an aquatint from a small edition, is a fantastic example of Scherman's aesthetic.
A rare affordable entry point for a young collector interested in Tony Scherman.
Scherman’s work can be found in nearly every public collection in Canada, as well as many international museums including LACMA (Los Angeles) and Centre Pompidou (Paris)
