James Coignard (1925-2008), Composition "AB", (reported title), numbered 4/75, signed in pencil and enhanced by hand by the artist Magnétique composition on beige background studded with mineral droplets - dripping -, fine bruises mapping the dense paper of the Moulin de Larroque, slate-colored, blue, white, green gems; a large red strikethrough above the inscription AB, where two figures in the shape of black signs meet at its epicenter, like two abstract Dogon horsemen facing each other in the orchestrated chaos of savannah stripes crossed by Aegean blue. It is an engraving with a geological scope, stratifying different paintings, capital imaginary scenes in this eminently singular engraved decoration. Important original carborandum engraving, a process developed by the painter Goetz in 1967 which allows a very artistic inking on thicker relief 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 singularity of each print is reinforced by the paint highlights that James Coignard brings to the prints that 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.
