Friedensreich Hundertwasser, 1991
Hundertwasser mastered and innovated many graphic techniques, among them lithograph, silk screen, etching, color woodcut and others. He was one of the first artists to demand and practice complete transparency in terms of technique, dates of creation and editions for each sheet. Hundertwasser never really created large editions of one and the same graphic work. His graphic editions comprise several color versions and variants, which are not numbered separately, but instead numbered throughout the entire edition. It was his aim to make many different unique pieces within the art of the graphic, thereby going beyond machine production. Hundertwasser always took great care to provide exact information about the work on each graphic sheet, in order to arrive at as complete a disclosure of a work's techniques and creation dates as possible.
