About

'Boeuf Ecorche' is an original color lithograph, signed by Claude Weisbuch – and it is a quintessential example of the contemporary artist's interest in the old masters. In the image, Weisbuch shows the lauded artist Rembrandt sitting before a canvas. Hanging to the left is the subject of one of Rembrandt's most notorious paintings: the 'Slaughtered Ox,' which has been at the Louvre in Paris since 1857. Rembrandt looks out to the viewer, as though caught by surprise in his contemplation of death and sustenance. The drapery of Rembrandt's clothes and cloak mirror the ripples of the ribs of the carcass, visually connecting the artist to unavoidable death and decay. Weisbuch has created this moment using his typical style of way-finding lines and natural colors, evoking movement and change while also recalling the drawings of the old masters themselves. 21.75 x 29.75 inches, artwork 32 x 40 inches, frame Edition 68/160 in pencil, lower left Signed in pencil, lower right Framed to conservation standards using archival materials including 100 percent rag matting, and housed in a reverse ogee dark maple moulding. Claude Weisbuch was born in Thionville, France in 1927 and was a pupil at L' École des Beaux-Arts de Nancy, France. As a painter, engraver, and exceptional lithographer, Claude Weisbuch has painted active motifs, such as musicians, horses, characters. Dominating in his work, by the relief and the velvety line which characterizes drypoint, his etchings are the strongest representations of his figures, intensely lively after 1960s. Using dark tones which express his sharp sense, Claude Weisbuch ceaselessly captures life's dynamics, as the pictorial, musical and literary expressions that are essentially human. Whether it is the impassioned violinist, the mercurial actor, or the sitter shrouded with silent intensity, they have all been rendered with Weisbuch's love for drama. The brushstrokes are sweeping and bold while the paint is fluid. His pictures, full of movement, give one the impression of time-lapsed motion, and display an expression of passionate humanity tinged with a unique energy.
