MOSCHOS Georgios (1906-1990) “Skyrian Pitcher”

Skyrian Pitcher

This work with its strong contrasts – black/white, foreground/background, simple monochrome form and complex fragmented unity – is one of the artist`s best-known wood engravings. A skilled technician, Moschos was mainly interested in the realistic description of his subjects. He preferred landscapes and scenes of everyday life in the country, which he rendered with a boldly incised line.
