TONY SCHERMAN "JOCASTA" 2004
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 portraits (whether contemporary, historical or allegorical) reference Goya and Manet.
This is one of Scherman's most iconic images - depicting Jocasta - Oedipus' mother.
First executed as a large-scale canvas, Scherman would recreate the work as a limited edition Gicle print for "Art with Heart" in 2004.
A decade after its creation, the work remains one of Scherman's most recognizable images.
A rare affordable entry point for a young collector interested in 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)
