Leo Leonhard: Painting "Pavement artist"

Leonhard pays his respectto the the great people of art history in a witty way. Here we can see the "Pavement artist" under whose skillful hands there appears the "Calling of Saint Matthew" by Caravaggio, created in 1599. The painting lets us take part in the art dialog which has a history of 400 years. In this dialog Leonhard speaks with the artist Caravaggio, ironically breaking solid museum honor.

Reproduction of a colourized drypoint as colourful giclée on handmade paper scooped. Limited edition of 299 pieces, numbered and signed. Ars Mundi Exclusive Edition. Unframed. Sheet size 73 x 54 cm.

Leo Leonhard was born in 1939 in Leipzig.

After studying German in Marburg, Germany, he studied painting and graphics at the Art Academy in Dusseldorf. Leonhard taught for many years as a Professor of drawing and illustration in Mainz. He gained international renown through his numerous book illustrations, which, go far beyond how about his highly vaunted "fist cycle"--a graphic accompanying of the narrative action. Leonhard draws and commented on his illustrations bind the classics to the contemporary. It's no different in the works of his homages cycles that emerged in the last few years (oil painting, but also as a drawing and etching).

Leonhard proves his reverence the great art history with a wink. There's Joseph Beuys, one daliesk on huge stilts that progressive rabbits observed ("Beuys and the Hare"), there's a Hommage à Piero della Francesca, in whose Werk threatens to be glossed over with a big paint roller by a craftsman ("roll over Piero"). And there's the 'patch painters", under whose skilful hands is Caravaggio's" Calling of Saint Matthew" from 1599.

Giclée = derived from the French verb gicler meaning "to squirt, spray".

Giclée method is a digital printing process. It is a high-resolution, large-format printout on an inkjet printer with special different coloured or pigment-based inks (usually six to twelve). The colours are light-fast, that is, resistant to harmful UV light. They have a high richness of nuance, contrast and saturation.

The Giclée process is suitable for real art canvas, handmade and watercolor paper and for silk.
