Description

Ramon Oeschger worked at experimental printmaking center Atelier 17 in Paris in the early 1950s. This print's combination of vivid colors and layered shapes and lines illustrates the staying power of the Atelier's early forays into the new world of the color viscosity intaglio process.

Long Clawson is a small village in Leicestershire, England. The population is included in the civil parish of Clawson, Hose and Harby. Situated in the Vale of Belvoir, the village is surrounded by farmland with rich soil ideal for pasture. Milk from local dairy farms is used for production of Stilton cheese. The Long Clawson dairy is one of the largest producers of this cheese.

Oeschger attended San Francisco State University where he received his teaching credential and then he earned his M.A. from San Jose State University. Oeschger traveled to Paris in the 1950s to work at Stanley William Hayter’s experimental workshop, Atelier 17. A forty-year teaching career followed and he taught printmaking at San Jose City College.

Oeschger concentrated primarily on printmaking, specifically etching and engraving, as well as the collagraph process. He was awarded a purchase prize at the National Print Exhibition, 14th Biennial at the Brooklyn Museum.
