Frederich Meckseper (German, b. 1936), untitled color aquatint etching, 1969 CE. A wonderful composition depicting a geometric cube, labeled "A, B, C, E, F, G, H" at the vertices, with a linear 'web' of extended cross hatched marks and seemingly random black ink marks across the surface, all in yellow, light grey, and charcoal grey hues. The etching is hand signed "Meckseper" and dated "69" in pencil at lower right and numbered "18/180" in pencil at the lower left. Friedrich Meckseper grew up in Stuttgart, Germany and studied at the State Academy of Fine Arts in Stuttgart under Karl Rossing and the University of Fine Arts Berlin under Wolf Hoffman. His works are imbued with the dramatic visual power of minimalism and the utmost precision of technical design. Also fascinated by engineering, in the mid-1970s Meckseper designed and built a steamer and between 1978 and 1986 he crossed the Alps five times in a gas balloon. A wonderful work on paper created by an artist inspired by both art and science. Size: 12.375" L x 16.5" W (31.4 cm x 41.9 cm)
