The 30th IFPDA Print Fair runs October 26th through the 29th at the Javits Center NYC with 90+ exhibitors.
Our gallery presents a selection of prints in the "Online Exclusive" section.Our presentation is entitled "Erich Heckel and his Muses":
From girlfriends, companions, dancers, actresses to casual acquaintances: In the graphic work of Erich Heckel, a woman is often at the centre. The female body inspired Heckel to create woodcuts, lithographs and etchings, in which he found inspiration for motif and style. Heckel captured his models in various snapshots, showing bathers on the beach, resting in front of a patterned background, a clothed woman in nature or portraits. They all testify to the artist's intense engagement with the theme of femininity - one of the oldest motifs in art - and its translation into modernity. The deliberately angular, rough and reduced contours as well as the dissolution of the perspective of the captured models are regarded as a consistent continuation of the painterly achievements that Heckel developed as a founding member of BRÜCKE.
