All Reasonable Offers will be Considered
MORNING SONG II by Mikulas Kravjansky is an intaglio print with an image and sheet size of 20″ X 26”. Only two were printed and this is State I/II. It is pencil signed and numbered by the artist. This is a beautiful, high quality print.
Note the picture of a mural painted by Kravjansky on a building in downtown Napa CA depicting scenes and images from the turn of the century (circa 1900). Also shown is a picture of the artst painting.
The prints of Mikulas Kravjansky are created by the old master technique of Intaglio on hand made paper with heavy embossing and metallic inlays. A picture cannot reflect the beauty, quality and details exhibited in this piece of art.These are truly works of a master. Each piece is entirely hand made and thus each piece within the edition is unique. Because of this, I replaced the picture in this listing with a picture of the actual piece in this offer. My previous picture was taken of the last piece I sold which was a bit different.
This print is in excellent condition and has not been framed or mounted. As with prints on hand made paper, small tears often exist on the edges but are not visible on the front side of the image. Also, small pieces of the paper tend to fall off as this is not a cut sheet of paper, but rather, each piece is cast by hand.

ABOUT THE ARTIST – (click on any image to enlarge it)
Mikulas Kravjansky excels in the artistic printing technique known as intaglio. This includes etching, engraving, dry point, aquatint, mezzotint, linocut, wood block and collograph.
In this complex process the image is created by the artist on a plate of copper, aluminum, plastic or other material by adding to, or subtracting from, the surface of the plate. All ink colors are applied to the plate and a sheet of wet hand made paper placed on it. This is covered with felt and run through steel rollers of an etching press. As water is squeezed from the paper, suction draws the ink into the paper.
This hand procedure is repeated for each piece of the edition. After drying for a week, Kravjansky may add hand painting or laminate metallic inlays to the work. His editions are small as these plates will only print a limited quantity before wearing out, after which he destroys the plates.
