About

FRANCESCO CLEMENTE b. 1952 Naples 1952 (Italian) Title: Morning, 1981/82 Technique: Original Hand Signed, Dated, Titled and Inscribed Woodcut in Colours on Japan Paper Paper size: 42.5 x 57 cm. / 16.7 x 22.4 in. Image size: 36 x 51 cm. / 14.2 x 20 in. Additional Information: This original woodcut in colours is hand signed in pencil by the artist "F. Clemente" at the lower right margin. It is dated “81” [1981] next to the signature. It is also hand inscribed in pencil “T.P.”, at the lower left margin. Our impression is one of six trial proofs aside from the standard edition of 100, there were also 10 artist’s proofs. It was printed by Tadashi Toda, Shi-un-do Print Shop, Kyoto in 1981 and published by Crown Point Press, San Francisco in 1982. Other impressions of this work are included in the collections of the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra and the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco. Note: Francesco Clemente (born 1952) is one of a group of Italian artists who emerged in the late 1970s as part of a European-wide revival of Neo-Expressionist figurative painting, but Clemente was also much influenced by historical Italian painting and by the art of India, a country where he has spent much of his life. His watercolour drawings have an exceptional luminosity. In this print he and his Japanese printers created a paradoxical, virtuoso piece of work that looks exactly like a watercolour but is in fact a woodcut. Condition: Very good condition. The paper bears a printer’s crease originating in the printing process at the left margin. Remannts of hinging in the upper corners, verso.
