Private Sales - Robert Longo - Print Portfolio - 2017 SOLD
The enormous, photorealistic charcoal drawings by American artist Robert Longo (*1953 in Brooklyn, New York) show the beauty and horror of the present day and age. His large-format works contrast the innocence of sleepingtoddlers, the tranquil grandiosity of Earth and the planets, roses in bloom, and Gothic cathedrals with threatening images of atom bomb explosions, fighter pilots, monster waves, sharks, and the muzzles of revolvers. Inexorably and seismographically precise, the winner of the 2005 Goslar Kaiserring and 2010 inductee into the French Order of Arts and Letters records the state of our world. Longo’s powerful motifs give form and expression to the feelings of fear and longing felt by people in the twenty-first century, and affect the viewer with the full force of the medium.
Four current motifs of Longo's extensive oeuvre have been beautifully reproduced using a high-quality print process and inserted into a handmade bookbinder folder: the US capitol, a group of policemen behind their shields, the ocean under a swinging chandelier, and the rider-less black horse accompanying the funeral procession of John F. Kennedy.
