Lithograph poster after a drypoint- "Pointe seche" verso
29.88 x 20.75 in
This poster is a lithographic enlargement of the dry point print 'Il bouge sans arrêt' by the French artist Claude Weisbuch. The image is an early example of his explorations into the nature of movement: in the image, the same model is seen from different vantage points - from behind, at a three-quarter view, etc. This shows Wesibuch grappling with how to portray the living model. Each iteration of the body and the face shows how the model changes in relation to the artist over the course of a single sitting, how each movement renders the subject of art impermanent. All the while, this adds a sense of dynamism and vitality to the sitter, showing them as alive and in the world. 29.88 x 20.75 inches, poster 32.13 x 23.38 inches, frame Signed and inscribed to David Barnett, lower right Inscribed "Agrandissement, pointe seche, il bouge sans arrêt" by the artist, en verso Framed to conservation standards using archival materials including 100 percent rag mounting materials, UV5 Plexiglas to inhibit fading, and housed in a high-gloss black aluminium moulding.
