A set of SIX LARGE ORIGINAL SIGNED ETCHINGS by Leonard Baskin, in pristine condition. Baskin executed three original etchings for Homer's Iliad: "Hephaistos", "Ares", and "Homer". 150 sets were published, of which this is ONE OF 60 DELUXE SETS WITH TWO SUITES OF THE ETCHINGS, ON FINE FABRIANO LAID PAPER AND ON JAPON NACRE. I offer only the six etchings (and the large folio prospectus), not the box of sixty reproductions. The etchings measure 44 x 37.5 cm (plate) and 67 x 52 cm (sheet).
Leonard Baskin was an American sculptor, illustrator, wood-engraver, printmaker, graphic artist, writer and teacher.Read More
