Lausanne: Andre and Pierre Gonin, 1966. Erni, Hans. Limited edition. Unbound lithograph. Mare and foal, lithographed in black, grey, and white. Ca. 6 inches square. Very good. Item #31160
Chevaux was a portfolio of 30 original lithographs by Erni, accompanied by texts about the horse by various writers. It was published in Lausanne, Switzerland, in an edition of 399 copies. The portfolio was often broken up for its plates, which was the case here. This is Plate XXVI and its adjoining text pages, removed long ago by an art gallery. Erni was a Swiss painter and draftsman known especially for his fluid line, as seen here. Can be sent outside the US for less than the default shipping rate.
