Pia (Opus 319) - JAKOB DEMUS - diamond drypoint

Austrian, (b. 1959)

Diamond drypoint, 2010, edition of just a few impressions. 9 3/4 x 5 5/8 in. Signed, titled, dated and inscribed, "313/I/probedruck.) This is a superb impression printed with plate tone. The margins are full and the condition is excellent. This exceptional print is from the artist's 2010 "Nike" series in which he draws directly from nature on the copper plate and then he prints an edition of only a few impressions. These "plein air" drypoints were done in the forests around Vienna and demonstrate the artist's exceptional skills as a draughtsman. Inspired by the work of Rembrandt, Demus here shows remarkable freedom with the copper plate and the prints from this series are a notable departure from his more restrained and detailed prints from the 1980s. Nike refers to the Greek goddess of victory. The prints are all titled with the names of women.       $1,400
