About the work
The Bushveld Tree is a coffee lift aquatint etching that William Kentridge has dedicated to the ongoing collaboration and support of Artist Proof Studio. The APS portion of the edition of etchings (20 available) will be sold at a special promotion to RMB Signet clients exclusively at a price of R 50 000 (excl. VAT).
The Bushveld Tree is based from a series of large ink-wash drawings on hand-made Phumani paper of Trees that Kentridge is working on for an upcoming exhibition at the Royal Academy in London.
The aquatint is built up from multiple stages of etching to build up the layers of rich tonalities of the coffee-lift aquatint. The line work consists of drypoint on a copper plate. The plates are printed on special Phumani hand-made sisal fiber paper, made especially for this edition. The lightweight paper is tipped onto 350gm Revere cotton paper.
Artist Proof Studio is grateful to William Kentridge for his extraordinary contribution and to our partnership with RMB for their support in promoting this special edition of works.
