Clown et Ecuyer (Clown and Rider)

The French artist Claude Weisbuch, born in 1927, taught engraving at the Saint-Etienne Art School in France. An enthusiast of classical music and theater, he often portrayed musicians and actors in his work. His dramatic compositions and expressive brushstrokes reveal the raw emotion of his subjects.

As is evident in this lithograph, Weisbuch’s compositions frequently have a spontaneous, sometimes unfinished look. In his own words: “I like the sketch, the [un]completed, the painting filled with mystery.”
