Booklet comprised of 10 woodcuts made by Israeli artist Paul Konrad Hoenich. Before us is numbered copy 64.
"The path of life in 10 pictures, which I envisioned and felt in my heart, the images of the unknown pioneer, I etch on these plates." Each woodcut is described in pencil. Special numbered publication of 500 numbered copies, printed from the original plates.
The artist emphasizes: "Special prints published by HaDor, not done as they customarily publish graphics cycles, because they conflict with the basic premise of this work. The printing was done from the original plates. This exemplar is numbered 64."
Professor Paul Konrad Hoenich (1907-1997) was an Israeli artist known for his prints. He was born in Chernowitz, and studied art at the academies of Vienna, Florence and Paris. He ascended to the Land in 1935 and later on served as a professor at the Technion and established "Art Studio - Haifa" in Haifa. He became famous for his works in which he used the sun's rays.
[10] plates, 31 cm; very fine condition. Aging stains.
