About

'Polichinelle Et Ses Trois Chiens,' or in English 'Pulcinella and His Three Dogs,' is an original signed lithograph by the contemporary artist Claude Weisbuch – and it is an excellent example of the artist's interest in the art and literature of the Renaissance. Pulcinella is one of the characters of the commedia dell'arte of the 17th century and became a stock character in Neapolitan puppetry and theater. He was meant to be a symbol of the people, acting as their voice in popular culture, while also satirizing them. Weisbuch's iconic style of sketchy wayfinding lines and muted colors references the drawings of old master artists, but for the contemporary eye. 30 x 22.5 inches, artwork 38.75 x 30.25 inches, frame Edition 25/250 in pencil, lower left Signed in pencil, lower right Framed to conservation standards using archival materials including 100 percent rag matting and Museum Glass to inhibit fading; housed in a gold finish wood 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.
