PIERRE BALTENSPERGER – Wald, 1967
Handätzung
Sheet size: 440x310 mm
Image size: 250x205 mm
Edition: 100 – Signed by artist
Original relief etching (Handätzung) by Pierre Baltensperger, signed in pencil by the artist (with Baltensperger's later, flamboyantly illegible signature). Printed by A. Stutz on wove paper. From number 10/100 of the 100 de luxe copies (Gönnerausgabe) of issue 36 of the Zurich art revue Spektrum, in which the original prints were signed by the artists; in ordinary copies the prints were unsigned. There are printed credits above, and on the verso there is text and a wood engraving by Walter Wörn, as issued. In very good condition, with a little age-toning to the paper. This etching is credited by Spektrum as a Zinkätzung; whether there is a difference in technique between this and the relief etchings credited as Handätzung is not clear. As Handätzung were executed on zinc plates, the two terms are probably interchangeable. Condition: Very good, see description.
