SOREL ETROG "UNTITLED SCULPTURE" INTAGLIO, 1969
Caviar20 has a particular interest in sculptors who also turn a hand at printmaking.
This dynamic intaglio print with embossing, created and printed in Italy, is a likely a sibling to Etrog's and Claude Aveline's famous book of poetry "L'oiseau qui n'existe pas".
The forms here are more elaborate and defined. As the title exists this is a two-dimensional creation of a form that could have existed as a sculpture.
Caviar20 acquired this piece directly from the Estate of Sorel Etrog. Our research has revealed that legendary art dealer Martha Jackson had sold examples from the edition. To our knowledge this is the first example that come on the secondary market since being offered by Martha Jackson Graphics in 1971 and 1972.
Today Sorel Etrog's works can be found in numerous museum and private collections around the world including the Tate, the AGO and LACMA.
This work is a great example of Etrog's aesthetic and inimitable forms - an ideal starter piece for your collection or will perfectly complement a major sculpture.
