Remarkable works to collect at IFPDA, from less than $ 1,000 to over $ 20,000
It’s not just Jasper Johns whose print prices can hit five figures. Carolina Nitsch’s presentation also includes a recent print from, Reflect idealism (2021), which, as the title suggests, is printed on a mirror medium. This work is priced at $ 30,000. Among the many prints by Louise Bourgeois in the gallery is the unbound book Ode to my mother (1995), which includes nine drypoint engravings depicting her most iconic subject and visual metaphor for motherhood, the spider. It is priced at $ 85,000.
Connecticut-based gallery of works on paper, Charles M. Young Fine Prints & Drawings, also features absolute gems, including surrealist prints by Joan MirÃ³ and AndrÃ© Masson, and a characteristic scene of pre-war brutality by Kara. Walker. One of the gallery’s most striking works is a print that combines several techniques (etching, photoengraving, screen printing, woodcut and embossing) in a triptych juxtaposing a photograph of a man’s face, a mystical figure in rusty tones whose outline resembles the underside of an iron, and a third image combining elements of the first two into a sort of masked figure. Title Man, Spirit, Mask (1999), the print is priced at $ 36,000. But perhaps one of the most exquisite and striking works on the gallery stand is An untitled print (1981-1982) by âlike Jasper Johns, a nonagenarian and absolute icon. The soft lines of black and green ink of the nearly eight-foot-tall lithograph belies the gravity of the subject, which appears to be an apocalyptic tidal wave. The terribly timely description of an environmental disaster is priced at $ 34,000.
