JANE COPUS, Born Durban, South Africa 1944. Royal Barge & Radiolaria, Diatoms and New Moon. Original colour drypoint, 2014. This original print is for sale, priced £500

 

JANE COPUS
Born Durban, South Africa 1944

Jane Copus has spent most of her adult life in England. She was a visiting lecturer in painting and drawing at various London art schools for thirty-four years, and in the 1980’s worked as a freelance illustrator. In retirement she has developed an interest in printmaking.

She is greatly interested in microscopic marine life forms, inspired by the 19th century biologist Ernst Haekel . The particular genesis of the Royal Barge series was influenced by the fact that she now lives near water, in Medway, and by a work called Octopus and Effigies, by the Aboriginal Australian printmaker Dennis Nona.

Royal Barge & Radiolaria, Diatoms
and New Moon

318 x 247 mm
Original colour drypoint and cut outs, with hand-painted details in gold, 2014.
Monogrammed in pencil and dated.
Entitled and numbered 1/1.
On cream Somerset wove paper.

£500

The images of the barge and the various “treasures of the deep” were drypointed on the reverse of discarded lithographic plates; aluminium sheets so thin that the images could be cut out with a pair of nail scissors. These, individually inked up, were scattered onto an inked ‘blank’ plate, a sheet of damp paper placed on top and put through an intaglio press. A technique which gives one-offs but can be used for a series of variations using the same elements. The Royal Barge was printed in a series of four, one and two having old moons, the third (that offered here) a new moon and the fourth, no moon.

WILLIAM LEE-HANKEY R.E.
Chester 1869 – 1952 London

A painter in oils and watercolour, Lee-Hankey took up etching in 1904, the same year he built a house in Le Touquet and acquired a studio in Etaples.

JACOB MATHAM
Haarlem 1571 – 1631 Haarlem
after
HENDRIK GOLTZIUS
Brüggen 1558 – 1617 Haarlem

Matham’s widowed mother married the engraver Hendrik Goltzius in 1579. Goltzius adopted Matham and trained him as an engraver. By his late teens Matham was employed to engrave Goltzius’ designs for publication.

Among these early collaborations was a set of eight ‘Mythological Subjects’ which included several themes of ‘numbered’ groups of figures and personifications that were so popular at the period – and included the four Elements, five Senses, seven Virtues, and three Fates, as well as the three Graces offered here.

Goltzius red chalk drawing for this subject is in the Berlin Kupferstichkabinett collection.

£2000

The three Graces, Aglaia, Euphrosyne and Thalia, personifications of grace and beauty, were the attendants of several goddesses, primarily Venus. Goltzius followed the grouping which had been used on Antique reliefs and imitated by Italian Renaissance artists, of the two outer figures facing the viewer and the central figure seen from the back.

Seneca described them as the threefold aspects of generosity- the giving, receiving and reciprocating of gifts, while in the Renaissance they were considered personifications of Chastity, Beauty and Love, or as three phases of love.

The verses at the foot of the plate comment on the goddesses, sitting naked in the clouds, as clothed with grace and representing a pure love above worldly considerations.

HEINRICH VOGELER, Bremen 1872 – 1942 Kazakhstan. Frühlings Morgen. Etching and drypoint, 1899. This original print is for sale, priced £850

 

HEINRICH VOGELER
Bremen 1872 – 1942 Kazakhstan

Vogeler moved to Worpswede in 1894. A village outside of Bremen, it had developed as an artists' colony, in a similar way to Barbizon in France, when Otto Modersohn and Fritz Mackensen, fellow students of Vogeler at the Düsseldorf Academy, visited there in 1889.

Though initially characterised by ‘plein air’ landscape painting, the arrival of Vogeler brought a Jugendstil tendency.

Following their group exhibition in Bremen in 1895 Paula Becker, a pioneer Expressionist (who would marry Otto Modersohn) was also attracted to the colony.
