About this Item

A portfolio of four original woodcuts (by Hernández Pijuan, Eduard Alcoy, Carles Planell, and Rovira-Brull) and a short poem (by "Terri", i.e., Lluís Terricabres). THE ONLY PUBLICATION OF THE "SILEX" GROUP OF ARTISTS, formed in Barcelona in the mid-1950s. Includes HERNANDEZ PIJUAN'S EXCEEDINGLY RARE FIRST EDITIONED PRINT (HP 554, unknown to the compilers of the catalogue raisonné until it was discovered after the artist's death and included in the appendix of the fourth volume). Although limited to 150 copies according to the justification, only about 30 were actually assembled (of which this is number 3). Printed on fine Guarro wove paper. IN THIS SET, ALL OF THE PRINTS ARE SIGNED IN PENCIL. THE POEM IS SIGNED IN PEN. 4to. Loose as issued in a printed wrapper. A bit of spotting and wear to wrapper, contents FINE AND BRIGHT, with no defects. Most of the 30 sets were surely disposed of long before Hernandez Pijuan (and to a lesser degree, Rovira-Brull) became famous, and many others have been broken up for the individual prints. I located only one other complete set. What makes this set even more unusual is the fact that wooducts are extremely rare in Hernández Pijuan's extensive graphic oeuvre: the artist generally preferred lithography and intaglio.
