Rhinoceros

Regular price $900.00 Sale

A whimsical portrayal of an acrobatic rhinoceros by French artist Mario Avati (1921-2009). Standing on only two feet, the rhino balances one ball on his horn, supporting his weight on a board precariously placed on another ball. Avati was considered in his lifetime a master of the mezzotint medium, a difficult printing process that requires great finesse. This mezzotint is signed and numbered in pencil, edition: 51/75. It is offered unframed.
