Behind the pseudonym of Lor Dethal lies Nemanja Torlak, a writer for Widewalls intrigued and moved by diversity in art and in the lives of those who create it. It is often the unexpected that come forth and surprise us, and art is a world that allows it and makes it possible. David beats the Goliath daily, and writing about it is a pleasure.

The French artist Auguste Lepere was one of the most renowned etchers and wood carvers of his time. Known for combining the two styles in the same piece, as well as reviving wood engraving in Europe, he has created over 150 etchings and 200 wood engravings during his career.
