Description — Click to read

Etching a la poupée on 300gsm Somerset Satin White paper. Signed, dated, numbered and titled on front. Etching a lapoupée is a method where all the colours are applied to one plate with twists of cloth and the image is printed in one pull. This edition features a scene taken from one of Raqib Shaw’s most recent paintings, titled The Martyrdom of Icarus (After Honthorstand Carracci), a painting which was partly inspired by Annibale Carracci’s Triumph of Bacchus and Ariadne. Raqib Shaw (b. 1974, Calcutta) is a Kashmiri artist who lives and works in London. He often depicts otherworldly and fantastical scenes with a number of mythological and literary characters that represent puzzling and provocative themes.
