Arthur Boyd 'S and W' - Rare original etching

Regular price $1,650.00

Arthur Boyd was a poetic artist. His pictures not only illustrate story, they use the figure to describe the human condition. To convey and call up emotions like tenderness, pity, tragedy, the sweet affection of bodies, anger and lust - he needed to embody them. This rare, highly collectible museum quality etching from modern master Arthur Boyd was created during a period of collaboration with poet Peter Porter in the early 1970s. Ebullient and bursting with creative human energy this work of art promises to engage your imagination for years to come.
