Lot 538. Tadeusz Was (Polish, 1911-2005) – ‘Tears’ Pencil signed sootcut, titled and dated 1956 verso, approx 32x26cm, framed. NB: Story has it that the process of sootcut was discovered by Tadeusz Was who was stationed in the desert in World War II, he apparently held orange peel over a burning oil lamp and the resulting soot produced formed a perfect impression when in contact with paper.

Estimate 100-150 GBP. Wright Marshall. 02/11/17
