Leo Leonhard: Painting "Paving Painter", Framed

Leonhard pays a witty tribute to the great personalities of the art history. Here we see the "Pavement Artist," Caravaggio, whose skillful hands are preparing the "Calling to Saint Matthew" from 1599. The artist quotes the great work and sets it in connection with the 21st century. The viewer gets engaged in the art-dialog with a duration of more than 400 years. Leonhard starts a conversation with the fellow-artist Caravaggio, breaking the solidification of the museum honor with a sense of humor.The reproduction of a colored cold-needle etching as a colorful giclee from handmade Buetten paper. Limited edition of 299 copies, numbered and signed by hand. ars mundi special edition. Sheet format 54 x 73 cm (H/W). Framed in the silvery solid wood frame. Format 58 x 77 cm (H/W).

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.
