Description
Despite the printing date of 1980, this engraving appears to have been done much earlier. This feels like a transitional piece Landeck would have made in the early days of working at Atelier 17. The image appears to pay homage to Cubism. This interior scene is veiled in lines of various widths running in various directions with the veil interrupted by conical shapes with strong outlines.
