Daniel Sabater Portrait
This surreal portrait depicts Spanish painter Daniel Sabater (1888-1951) surrounded by a series of curious figures, including nude, witch-like creatures standing on the subject's paintbrush. These bizarre images appear to be personifications of the artist's imagination, representing Sabater's well known fantastical and nightmarish imagery. The hair of the subject swirls into cloud formations as though his thoughts are running wild. This portrait is signed by an unidentified friend of the artist.
The collagraph printmaking technique uses a collage of various materials printed onto a surface using a printing plate. The earthy red used gives the effect of sanguine chalk, recalling the sketching style of the old masters.
