S270 – Architecture and nostalgia VII (sunlight damage)
The Architecture and nostalgia series is a series of at least nine works (S124, S125, S134, S139, S254, S265, S270, S271, S272) but probably more. We do not have accurate information about the exact number of works in this series, as our source (the Breda Catalog) only goes as far as S272. Someone has written additional numbers in handwriting in the Breda Catalog and there the series counts up to S404. That would bring the total in this series to more than 25. However, we have no confirmation of this for the time being.
All the works in this series are architectural compositions, no plants, no creatures, no heaven, although this is mainly due to the fact that the viewing angle in these works is always high. This kind of modernism is so sure of its superiority that it allows itself far from reverential behavior against the old styles. That is why this series is called Architecture and nostalgia, says Delhez.
This work is the 7th in the series and the creation date is unknown, but the work was finished on the 19th of November 1955 in Chacras de Coria (Argentina). This is a print that has suffered from direct sunlight. Therefore we only ask about 1/3 of the normal price for the engravings in this series. There is no other damage. The work has a yellow brownish appearance that’s all.
