Six (6) Signed Artist’s Prints

1948. Portfolio of six cliché verre prints, each with title in image lower left, editioned 43/150 and signed in pencil lower right, 20.2 x 25.3cm to 27 x 25.4cm (images); 36.6 x 32cm (portfolio). Minor creases and slight foxing to edge of margins; stains, discolouration and scuffing to portfolio.

Print titles are (1) The Fish; (2) The Reptile; (3) The Bird; (4) The Struggle for Life; (5) The Lust for Power; and (6) Adam, Eve and Cain. Held in AGNSW; NGA.

This is the first portfolio of cliché-verre prints produced in Australia prior to the 1950s.

A cliché-verre, also called glass print, is made by “placing photographic paper beneath a glass plate on which a design has been scratched through a coating of an opaque substance and then exposing it to light. The fluid lines possible with cliché-verre prints are reminiscent of etched lines.” Ref: Britannica.
