'Isabel, Diorama, Scramble, Twenty Seventeen' by Luc Tuymans, Signed Etching printed in 2017 from an edition size of 20. The overall size of the Etching is 31.5 x 26.25 inches. The condition of this piece has been graded as A: Mint. Here is some supplemental information about the Etching: Hand signed and numbered out of 20 by Tuymans. Printed on Hahnemuhle Bright White 300 gsm paper. Comes in a blue linen folder. The four colour etchings Isabel, Diorama, Scramble, and Twenty Seventeen are based on iPhone photographs that Tuymans took while painting. They reveal an early, unfinished stage, which immediately evaporates during the creative process. The paint strokes that Tuymans places in the margin of the painting and the edges of the canvas are also incorporated in the etched image. The ephemeral plays a crucial role in the artist's work: these colour etchings belong to the same category as his tempera murals which no longer exist. At the same time, they offer a special insight into Tuymans' working process. The crumpled piece of paper in Scramble - still pale in the etching - becomes a monumental, colourful ball in the painting, which contrasts sharply with the dark background. The canary in Isabel will eventually become bright yellow, a surprising colour in Tuymans' work.
