Heracles with the Club - Original Etching by Anonymous Master 17th Century

17th Century

$1,149.91

About

Image dimensions: 14.6 x 9.6 cm. Heracles with the Club is a fine black and white etching on rosaspina paper, realized by an anonymous master of the Italian school of the end of XVII century. This original print with lifetime impression describes with incredible hatching the male anatomy exalted in important volumes, for this reason, we could identify the character of this print in the figure of the Greek mythological heroes Heracles remembered for his force and powerful body. Another proof of this thesis is done by the club he carries. Numbered downside on the lower margin at the center, this plate reports the number of 48. In excellent conditions although visible signs of time, light foxing on the margins beyond the marginal lines of the matrix, some minor defects on the edges and a usual yellowing of the paper at the edges. On the verso, on lower-left corner a blue ink stamp "Collezione Pugliese". An exciting original print has the dignity of a mythological or epic story, represented with an incredible balance of black and white, light and shadows and a typical baroque drawing. This artwork is shipped from Italy. Under existing legislation, any artwork in Italy created over 70 years ago by an artist who has died requires a licence for export regardless of the work’s market price. The shipping may require additional handling days to require the licence according to the final destination of the artwork.
