Description

This is the third image from a series of etchings titled "Witches Sketches" by Austrian artist Therese Eisenmann (born 1953). The edition is small, this is number four from the edition of 10, done in 1977. A coven of witches assemble around a huge skull, engaging in some sort of ceremony.

Austrian printmaker Therese Eisenmann has spent much of her artistic life in solitary pursuits, living in nature in the surmmer or in retreats in the winters. Her imagery is personal and reflect the themes of nature, animals, the female form and solitude which recur throughout her career.
