About

Dreams by Rasputin by Jose Luis Cuevas is an original lithograph printed at the Atelier Mourlot in 1968. An exaggerated illustration of Rasputin sits with his eyes crossed, furrowed brow and pale red highlights. Behind him is a cloud in which a faint outline of a face can be seen. Title and date printed in the plate on the bottom right of image. Certificate of Provenance: Each individual work of art carefully curated by Mourlot Editions comes with a Certificate of Provenance, signed, dated, stamped, and numbered by Eric Mourlot. Stored in a clear protective sleeve accompanying your piece, this certificate guarantees the origin and authenticity of your personal lithograph. About the Artist: José Luis Cuevas is a Mexican artist who worked primarily with etchings, illustrations, sculptures, and paintings, though he is perhaps best known for his drawings. According to Cuevas, “perhaps because I was born in a paper mill and pencil factory, paper has always had a great fascination for me.” He briefly attended the eminent Mexican institution Escuela de Pintura, however Cuevas considers himself a self-taught draughtsman in search of an alternative to the Mexican Muralists and their social messages. For Cuevas, his drawings represent the isolation of man and an inability to communicate, many of his drawings featuring distorted human figures and figures transformed into animals. His work was inspired by the graphic styles of Francisco de Goya, Pablo Picasso, and José Guadalupe Posada, as well as the works of the Catalan Romanesque, 19th-century Romanticism and German Expressionism.
