Mazeppa (etching)Lin Jammet (1958-2017)
Original etching from 1998, Mazeppa, from an edition of 30, signed, numbered and dated in pencil.
Printed at Gresham studios, on Moulin de Gue (a soft French paper made from linen and cotton), bearing their blindstamp lower right, on wove paper.
A powerful image of a naked man strapped to a horse making its way through a storm.
One from a series of seven etchings – see others listed. The amount of work that went into producing the finished etching deserves a mention. The etchings were drawn into a hard beeswax ground on zinc plates and etched in ferric chloride and nitric acid. In some instances acid was applied with a brush to provide areas of tone.
