Quick Overview

In the 1950s, Juvenal Sansó received a scholarship for printmaking in France. His mentor Edward Goerg, master of French expressionism, enlightened him about this artform, resulting in powerful works that were mischievous and grotesque, playful and grim.
‘Eve’ is considered to be among Sansó’s most iconic prints. It can be considered to be among Sansó’s favorites as he was able to develop his style and translate his skill in painting from this memorable image. The texture that had to be developed in painting was first explored through etching, where he found excitement in combining the effects of whorls and cross-hatches to create the ideal surface texture. These pieces are utterly different from the joyous landscapes of Sansó’s more recent painting.
