RAPHAEL SADELER I, Antwerp c1560 – c1632 Munich. An Allegory of Transitoriness. Engraving, c1590. This print is for sale.

RAPHAEL SADELER I
Antwerp c1560 – c1632 Munich

From a dynasty of engravers, Raphael was both an engraver and a publisher, the brother of Jan I & Aegidius I Sadeler. He shared a workshop with Jan from 1588 in Munich until 1596 when they moved to Venice. Raphael returned to Munich after Jan’s death in 1600.

The painter Maartin de Vos (1532-1603) was Dean of the Amsterdam Guild of St Luke 1571 and 1572. After 1575 he concentrated mainly on designing prints.

Watermark: a Gothic P with a Flower.

£350

An image abounding in symbolism conveying the brevity of human life and the transience of beauty – with the hourglass, the vases of flowers, the wheat being cut down, one child holding a skull, the other blowing bubbles. However, a counter to this message of the inevitability of death, is the distant ‘vignette’ of the Resurrection with its suggestion of the conquest of death.

Erasmus had reintroduced usage of the Latin proverbial expression Homo bulla (Man is a Bubble) in his Adagia, a collection of sayings, published 1572.

BRUNO GORLATO A.R.E., Born Padua 1940. In una sottile imprecise decisione. Original etching and aquatint, 2010. This print is for sale.

BRUNO GORLATO A.R.E.
Born Padua 1940

Bruno was born in Padua and still lives and works in the city as a painter and etcher.

In the late 1950’s he trained at the University of Architecture in Venice. It was over a decade later, working in town planning, that he developed his interest in etching and since then has been increasingly active in the medium.

His etchings are dream-like narratives.

[Please see my Web Exhibition with twenty-nine further etchings by Bruno.]

GERALD LESLIE BROCKHURST R.A., R.E., Edgbaston 1890 – 1978 New Jersey. Mélisande. Original etching, 1920.  This print is for sale.

GERALD LESLIE BROCKHURST R.A., R.E.
Edgbaston 1890 – 1978 New Jersey

Brockhurst attended Birmingham School of Art from the age of twelve, 1902. In his five years there he was hailed as “a new Botticelli”.

He moved to London in 1907 to study at the R.A. Schools. A travelling scholarship in 1913 took him to Paris and Milan, where he studied the Primitives, Botticelli, Leonardo and the Milanese masters of the Renaissance, who made a lasting impression on his style.

Though he bought etching tools in 1914, it was 1920 before he approached the medium seriously. Within a single year he was elected both an Associate and then a Fellow of the R.E.

Brockhurst’s first wife, Anaïs, in different guises, was the model for many of his etchings through the 1920’s.

ANNIBALE CARRACCI
Bologna 1560 – 1609 Rome

Annibale Carracci, one of the most important artistic figures in Italy at the turn of the 17th century, was the younger brother of Agostino. Unlike Agostino, Annibale turned to etching rather than engraving for making his prints from the 1590’s.

In 1594 the brothers moved to Rome, commissioned to paint ceiling frescoes for the Galleria Farnese, leaving their cousin Lodovico Carracci to run the academy in Bologna.

About 1605 the onset of a final debilitating illness stopped Annibale from painting. In 1606 he produced his last three dated etchings. Of a melancholic disposition himself, this characteristic pervades his etchings. He chose to portray themes expressive of human frailty, emotions or suffering, mainly in devotional subjects.
