Seven Portraits

This content is archived

As with all of Auerbach’s prints from this point onwards, this set was bitten, proofed and printed by Mark Balakjian and Dorothea Wight at Studio Prints, London, and published by Marlborough Graphics, London.

The series began in 1989 with two prints ( P.20-2000 & P.21-2000 ) made to accompany the ‘de-luxe’ edition of Robert Hughes’s 1990 book on Auerbach, which partly dictated the format.

Like the earlier series (Six Etchings of Heads 1980-2), the subjects comprised family, friends and acquaintances who already sat for the artist.
