Important original carborandum engraving, process set developed by the painter Goetz in 1967 which allows very artistic inking on thicker, embossed and irregular papers which are “sculpted” by the matrix during printing; process which was masterfully implemented by James Coignard but also Miro or Clavé. After printing, the variations between proofs are even more striking. The uniqueness of each print is reinforced by the paint highlights that James Coignard brings to the prints we offer for sale. Painter but above all exceptional engraver - of his own works -, master of art prints, James Coignard begins with ceramics, then sculpture, is akin to the School of Paris before breaking away from it and to meet a new and strong artistic path, which, from the 1960s, was accompanied by international recognition in the United States and Sweden. The Hervieu gallery gave him visibility in the Scandinavian countries. From the end of the 60s, the avenues offered by Goetz's process made him favor carborandum engraving in which he excelled.

Composition on a white and sand background, an S in the north splashed with azure, the silhouette of an abstract figure in a square in the center of the work extended by a newspaper clipping. In the West a black and purple haze. In the Orient six red planets in mouth drowned in the sun. This is how one could describe in a heraldic hermeneutics this solar engraving, a short print signed and numbered by the artist. Sublime destitution in the day of life subtly enhanced.
