Inge Clayton FRSA (1942-2010) - Contemporary Etching, Self Portrait
DescriptionA wonderful and unique contemporary etching from established Austrian artist Inge Clayton. The female form and sexuality are subjects frequented by the artist, and this self portrait of Clayton gives a raw and compelling insight into the mind of the artist. She holds an etching tool in one hand, while the other is nervously placed to her mouth. The earthy tones contrast with the bright blue of her eyes, and the expressive marks make this an instantly recognisable piece of Clayton's work. Unsigned. On wove.
In fine condition.
