HAP Grieshaber

Der Geburtstag / The birthday, 1952

Color woodcut on copperplate
61 × 50 cm

signed lower right: Grieshaber; numbered and inscribed lower right: 2 /5 Sweden edition: 5 copies

Especially in the small editions - the color woodcut "The Birthday" appeared in an edition of only 5 copies - HAP Grieshaber frees the woodcut from the function of a serving reproduction technique and upgrades it to a means of artistic design, without giving up the social mission associated with it, the reproduction of a message, in this case: the birthday greeting.

(GRIESH/D 1403)
