Avigdor Arikha: New Prints

23 June 2004 - 24 July 2004

Artist Info

Marlborough Graphics is pleased to announce an exhibition of dry-point engravings by Avigdor Arikha. Compelled by the directness of the medium and by its ‘intrinsic idiom and obstacles’ this is the first group of graphic work printed by the artists himself for 27 years. These dry-points revisit many of the themes explored in his early prints. They depict the artist’s immediate surrounds, his library, trees of Paris, and individual objects within his field of vision. Diverse and often prosaic, these subjects are imbued with hightened significance through diligent observation and rigorous attention to detail that emphasise his attention on how things are and on what they are.
