Henri-George Adam

Ombres Gravées

This original print is 41 out of a series of 50, signed at dated by Henri-George Adam in 1956. Seven rectangular fields arrange to comprise an angular abstract composition. Each field has a base layer of hatching executed with grid-like precision. Within the fields, abstract shapes layer over one another creating new shapes altogether with the resulting varying opacities. A diamond emerges from the composition along with prominent horizontal striations in the upper register.
