About this work
This intaglio print shows the profile of Abraham Lincoln wearing an American flag bowtie and top hat. The print is framed in maple with plexiglass.
Lasansky plays in two dimensions – painting, drawing, printmaking – but his portrait work jumps off the page. According to his son, Rory, who wrote an essay featured in the book Tomás Lasansky, Icons and Muses, when Tomás works in his studio, expect blinds drawn, doors locked — an artist sealed off from the world working all night with drypoint needles, burins, pencils, paintbrushes, and more– until he finally collapses asleep, splattered in paint, with multiple works complete.
Framed dimensions: 46 x 33 x 1.5
