P07532 GIRL OF PLEASURE 1978
Inscribed ‘Anton Heyboer 1978’ bottom left and bottom right, and ‘Eigendruck’
Etching with paint, printed by the artist, 25 1/2×39 1/8 (64.8×99.5)
Purchased from Galerie Espace, Amsterdam (Grant-in-Aid) 1981
Three unique prints [P07531, P07532 and P07533] from industrial zinc sheets made with colours mixed from soil, lead oxide (for red) and raw oil. Heyboer uses a tar ground and draws through it or scratches directly into the plate. He often adds paint, finger prints and small stamp impressions to the printed image. His imagery includes symbols and ideograms of his extraordinary life - he lives with four women in his own rural community.
