La Lune en ses quartiers

La Lune en ses quartiers


Erik Desmazières

(French, 1948-)

Etching, aquatint, roulette

Sheet: 23.2 x 25.4 cm (9 1/8 x 10 in.)

Gift of Carole W. and Charles B. Rosenblatt 2018.55

Catalogue raisonné: FF 228

Edition: Museum Het Rembrandthuis, Amsterdam


Erik Desmazières’ etchings and aquatints represent libraries, city views, cabinets of wonder, and other spaces rich with meaning, history, and content, both real and imagined. Through virtuoso draftsmanship and his consummate command of the technical aspects of etching, Desmazières renders his architectural spaces and cityscapes with hardened reality, simultaneously imbuing them with an uncanny sense of the fantastic and the surreal.
