SOREL ETROG "HAND STUDY" DRAWING, 1969

$4,500

The hand is one of the most enduring motif's in Sorel Etrog's oeuvre.

He explored this subject in nearly every medium and scale - from intimate prints to large scale public sculpture - such as the one on University Ave. between King and Wellington. 

This fine example of an Etrog work on paper, fuses two important elements from the artist's oeuvre - the hand and links. 

In his finest works, style will confront existential concerns. Here, are the linked fingers simply an aesthetic choice, a variation on a motif...or do they express something more poetic or personal. An artist needs his hands to be nimble, supple and responsive. How do we understand an image of fingers that are interlocked? Contrast this creation to a later depiction of a hand.

During Sorel Etrog's lifetime (1933 - 2014) there was little commercial emphasis put on his works on paper. The ones that the artist did release, sign and approve for exhibition are some of the finest examples in his oeuvre. 

This drawing is ideal for a young collector, or an established Etrog collector looking to complement a sculpture.

Sorel Etrog's work can be found in numerous museum and private collections around the world including the Tate, the AGO and LACMA.
