Leon Kossoff
Etchings

 

Working directly onto the plate, subject to an ongoing process of change, deepened and enriched, drawing is given primacy throughout Leon Kossoff’s etchings. 

Kossoff’s long-life favoured subject has always been London, overlooking its ever-changing landscapes, its bustling underground stations, from West to East - sometime obsessively working a single subject over a period of years. Standing out from the crowds, family and friends can be identifiable, in many cases from studioportraits.
