William Kentridge (B. 1955, South Africa)

In 2010, the artist directed and designed a new production of The Nose for The Metropolitan Opera. The show was based on a 1903 opera of the same name by Dmitri Shostakovich, which drew inspiration from an earlier story written by Nikolai Gogol in 1836. This hand signed and numbered, limited-edition print was commissioned by Lincoln Center in conjunction with the project and was created by the artist at the Brodsky Center for Innovative Editions at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey.



The Artist

William Kentridge

William Kentridge is a South African artist best known for his prints, drawings, and animated films. These are constructed by filming a drawing, making erasures and changes, and filming it again. In his drawings and animations, William Kentridge articulates the concerns of post-Apartheid South Africa with unparalleled nuance and lyricism. In the inventive process by which he created his best-known works, Kentridge draws and erases with charcoal, recording his compositions at each state. He then displays a video projection of the looped images alongside their highly worked and re-worked source drawings.
