This is an original hand pulled linocut - portrait of Wystan Hugh Auden (1907-1973) English-born poet widely considered among the greatest literary figures of the 20th century.
Designed, cut, and printed by me (Natalia Moroz). Signed in pencil, numbered (from a limited edition of 30) and dated 2004. The linoleum block is cut by hand, then inked and printed individually, so every print is slightly different. Printed on beautiful printmaking paper (Rising Stonehenge, acid-free) with oil based printing ink - all materials are permanent and archival. Generous wide margins provided around the image. Suitable for standard matting and framing.
Image area is about 5"x7" (13x18cm)
Paper size is 11" x15" (28x38cm)
Mint condition (never been matted or framed)
My other portraits of great writers include Robert Frost, Fyodor Dostoevsky, Rainer Maria Rilke, Konstantin Kavafis, Boris Pasternak, Anna Akhmatova, Osip Mandelshtam, Aleksander Blok, Marina Tsvataeva, Arseniy Tarkovsky, Joseph Brodsky, and Bulat Okudzhava.
