Le grand discours / Oration. Original etching, 1973. 75 signed and numbered impressions on Rives published by Maeght Editeur in Paris. Ours is an HC impression acquired directly from the artist. Artigas has explained his love of etchings as follows: "If I want a secret image with a magic quality, I turn to etching. The pressure of the damp paper will insure that the intensity of the black, the relief of the features etched on the copper will remain on the paper, giving it a richness and a finesse that forces us to look closely at it, making us wish to hold the etching in our hands, to feel the quality of the paper. The result is a work more secret, more intimate—more precious." Image size: 395x320mm on 760x570mm Arches paper. Price: $850.
Composition 3. Original drawing, 1982. Executed during Artigas' first visit to Madison WI. While in Madison, he stayed with us and every night, after working in the ceramics lab, he would draw on our big plywood work table, where he fell in love with the patterns that the plywood made when he drew upon sheets of paper resting directly upon the surface of the wood. Image size: 320x408mm. Price: $1750.
