About

Two Women, Lying Down - Niyoda Paper. An absolute stunning work on fine Japanese Niyoda Paper in a world wide edition of just 100. Gallery retail is $1,350. From Fünfundzwanzig Handzeichnungen By Gustav Klimt, 1919. Fünfundzwanzig Handzeichnungen contains twenty-five monochrome and two-color collotypes after drawings by Klimt. It is as remarkable an achievement in collotype printing as the monumental Das Werk Gustav Klimts. Yet because the 1919 portfolio is based on drawings, its aesthetic achievement lies in capturing the variations of line that characterize Klimt’s drawing style between 1898 and 1917. Klimt’s drawings of women are suffused with sexuality, although it is often unclear where the boundary between observation and identification lies.This tension between self-presentation and self-absorption parallels the alternating roles of Klimt’s gaze, which vacillates between consuming and melding with the female body. It is this emotional fluidity that distinguishes Klimt’s erotic drawings from the banal realm of pornography, and creates an intense psychological reaction in the viewer. in producing high quality collotype plates especially for prints that required three plates for color separation. The care with which the prints were made is evident throughout the portfolio: they are virtually indistinguishable from original drawings. Whether delicate or bold, Klimt’s line was faithfully rendered by the collotype process, enabling connoisseurs to own fine print versions of drawings that Klimt had long since ceased to show outside the privacy of his studio. The artwork will be shipped with a Certificate of Authenticity issued by White Cross Arts.
