Description:
Hermann Nitsch, Terragraph, Levitikus I, Israel, 2010 Terragraph with desert sand on canvas Israel, 2010 Hermann Nitsch (born 1938) – Austrian painter and performance artist Verso signed and numbered with marker lower center ’’’’3/30’’’’ Edition of 30; to accompany the artists’’’’ book ’’’’Levitikus’’’’ Published by Har-El Printers & Publishers, Tel Aviv Dimensions: 89 x 134.5 cm Very good condition This terragraph depicts one of twelve motives executed by the Austrian artist Hermann Nitsch who is well-known for his typical archaic and provocative style. Nitsch had been commissioned by the Israeli studio Har-El to create a series of works to accompany their artists’’’’s book ’’’’Levitikus’’’’ which describes the devotement ritual in the temple of Jerusalem from the 3rd book of Mose. Har-El also published each of the artist’’ ’’s motives in a series of 30 terragraphs on canvas that was finally signed and numbered by the artist. The present work is one beautiful example of these additional prints. The work is in very good condition considering its age. It is verso signed and numbered with marker lower center ‘3/30’’’’. The frame is also in very good condition with only minimal traces of use. The work measures 89 x 134.5 cm. Hermann Nitsch (b. 1938) Hermann Nitsch was born in Vienna in 1938. He studied at the Austrian Federal Education and Research Institute for Graphics in Vienna and then worked as a commercial artist at the Museum of Technology. In the late 1950s, the first painting actions were created and the concept of the ‘Orgien Mysterien Theater’’’’ was conceived. After his publicly held actions repeatedly led to confrontations with the Viennese authorities, Nitsch moved to Germany in 1968. In subsequent years, Nitsch performed his actions in many European and North American cities, enjoying great success. Since the early 1970s Nitsch held his regular ‘Orgien-Mysterien-Spiele’’’’ on the grounds of Schloss Prinzendorf. In 1972 the artist participated in documenta 5 in Kassel curated by Harald Szeemann and has since been honored with numerous awards. Works by Hermann Nitsch are in the collections of the Centre Pompidou in Paris, the MoMA in New York, the Pinakothek der Moderne in Munich and the Museum Ludwig in Cologne amongst others. (cbo)

Description:
Hermann Nitsch, 1938 Wien, lebt in Prinzendorf OHNE TITEL, 2001 Öl über farbiger Terragrafie auf Karton. 60 x 94 cm. Signiert, datiert und bezeichnet „handüberarbeitet“. Unter Glas gerahmt. Unikat. Die Terragrafie wurde als neue Drucktechnik von einer israelischen Firma entwickelt. Dabei werden moderne Bindemittel, Pigmente sowie Sand miteinander verbunden. Der Sand für den Terragraph-Druck wird nur an speziellen Stellen der Wüsten von Negev und Judäa gewonnen, anschließend neutralisiert und getrocknet. Im ersten Schritt wird das Papier mit Silikonlack versiegelt, um die Sand- und Ölschichten deutlich von der Blattoberfläche hervorzuheben. Der Sand wird zu verschiedenen Körnergrößen vermahlen, je nachdem, welcher Effekt erzielt werden soll. Der Druck selbst erfolgt mittels von Sieben wie bei der Serigrafie. Von der farbigen Terragraphie sind nur wenige Exemplare feststellbar, bei denen es sich um „Artist‘s proofs“ handelt, eine Auflage wurde vermutlich nicht geschaffen. Die Übermalung der Grafik verleiht der Arbeit Unikatcharakter. Einwandfreie Erhaltung. (980471) (18) Hermann Nitsch 1938 Vienna, lives in Prinzendorf UNTITLED, 2001 Oil over colour terragraph on cardboard. 60 x 94 cm. Signed, dated and inscribed “handüberarbeitet” (re-worked by hand). Framed. Unique work. Terragraph is a unique printing process, developed in Israel. The process involves combining advanced binding materials, pigment and sand. The sand of the terragraph is collected in specific areas of the Negev and Judean deserts, then neutralized and dried. To make a terragraph, first the paper is sealed with a silicone varnish to keep the sand and oil binders in relief on the paper's surface. The sand is then ground to different coarseness of grains, depending on the effect required. The image is then printed through a screen, as with a serigraph. Only few copies of terragraphs can be found, which are “artist's proofs“, there probably was no edition. Since the print has been extensively re-worked by the artist, it is unique. Mint condition.
