Jan 30: a favorite Desmazieres

A FAVORITE DESMAZIERES

Eric Desmazieres (b. 1948) is one of those inward-turning artists whose work is remote from any contemporary school or fashion–Charles Mèryon (1821-68) might be the nearest influence. His prints can be more labored than inventive, but at their best, as here, there is a wonderful, dreamy focus to them.
