Philippe Mohlitz

French , 1941 -

An artist influenced by Odilon Redon and Rodolphe Bresdin, Phillippe Mohlitz has brought to the art of engraving a freedom of line and profusion in detail unseen for hundreds of years. A critic wrote of his engravings that he had not seen such detail and luminosity (viz. the foreground of 'Paysage au raz de maree' or the 'Heros attaque' since Durer. No less impressive is Mohlitz's imagination - in his densely engraved prints he creates a world that is slowly revealed over repeated close viewings, a world that is underpinned by an almost classical preoccupation with, and brilliant execution of, composition and light.

Exhibitions: Mohlitz's work can be found in private and public collections in Europe and North America, including the Cabinet des Estampes of the Bibliotheque Nationale de France in Paris and the Museum of Modern Art in New York
