The Holy Face or the Golden Eye - Mellan

0 ratings

This virtuoso with the burin employed the technique of a single groove, where the lines don’t cross. In The Holy Face, which he engraved at the prodding of his intellectual and libertine friends, he represents the face of the suffering Christ with a single line engraved in a spiral. François Baudequin, the director of the Chalcographie studio of the Louvre, makes a print on camera from the copper plate held in the Royal Library of Brussels. And the Polish engraver Krzysztof Skorczewski enters into a dialogue with Claude Mellan through his own works of art.
