About

Artwork sold in perfect condition - Off-Print # 1 (Roma 1979) from the portfolio Statuary (Coffret Prestige # 7) This image was captured on film (1979) The selected negative was printed on Baryta paper by the author and then limited digital reproduction printed later (2021) on fine art paper Photo Rag Baryta 310 gsm for highest age resistance using pigment inks which are known for their longevity. It is undoubtedly in this portfolio that the artist's will is best seen. The dialogues and interactions are so powerful and numerous that the cacophony awaits us. To attempt an iconoclastic reference, it would be Shawn Levy's funny and crazy film, "Night at the Museum", rather than the wise alignment of a statuary at the British Museum. Whether they are warriors, scholars or politicians, these statuettes speak for themselves, speak to each other, and speak to us about ourselves: the polyphony is complete. Limited Edition 1/5 Unframed Please note this will include any custom sizes requested German photographer Jörg Krichbaum is clearly one of the "greats" of his generation. He is appreciated not only in his country but also in Italy, Belgium or France. His work, his artistic discourse, cannot be caught at first glance, because they cannot be seen in a single shot, but when they are presented in sets that have become coherent despite their disparities. This is what led the artist to accept as many exhibitions as possible. Following his death in 2002, his beneficiaries choose to preserve and protect this photographic archive, but do not give it the visibility it deserves. It was only in 2016 that an inventory and analysis work began in Brussels, when these archives were entrusted to Brussels Art Edition. Today, those in charge of the Krichbaum Fund are determined to transfer this archive as soon as possible to a European cultural organization (museum, specialized library, etc.) in order to ensure its final conservation and presentation to the public. Before this transfer, the curator and the beneficiaries have chosen to give the opportunity to great amateurs and collectors to acquire thematic “portfolios”, all made up of original silver prints, of exceptional quality, on baryta paper, with very rich midtones and really dense blacks. They are all signed and dated by the artist himself, all authenticated by the curator. Prints so rare that they can be considered unique pieces, even if some were printed in 2 or 3 copies in the 1980s and 90s. The detailed biography of the artist can be found on Wikipedia, his books and catalogs of his exhibitions are still for sale on the Internet (by Amazon and others), everything allows the enthusiast to verify for himself that the today's offer is truly exceptional.
