In 1968, the great Mexican printmaker, José Luis Cuevas, created a portfolio of 11 lithographs. The series, called Crimes by Cuevas, featured paintings describing criminality in history. An edition of that series is available in the upcoming auction of prints and multiples, offered by Morton Subastas. One lithograph from the series is titled Borgia and depicts Cesare and Lucrezia Borgia. The Borgia family came to prominence during the Italian Renaissance and was known equally for their patronage of the arts and notorious rise to political power. Each lithograph, including the title page, is signed and dated.
An etching by Rembrandt van Rijn, titled The Gold Weigher, is also featured in the event. Rembrandt’s innovative etchings made use of shadow and light to depict biblical scenes and self-portraits. The available work is signed and dated. Roy Lichtenstein’s 1966 serigraph series, As I Opened Fire, is on offer as well, along with works from other leading 20th-century artists.
