Just a short story how i found the Triptych by Guillaume Le Roy. I have been impressed by the graphic art of Guillaume Le Roy for over 15 years now. Since i began visiting specialized book auctions, i found that his works were offered on some occasions. In the beginnig i was not interested in buying them , but some 10 years ago i bought my first ” lot” which included 4 large prints ( ca. 120 x 80 cm). I began to admire his techniques and his compositions were fascinating to look at.
This was the beginning of a small collection of works by Le Roy. His black and /white ( now some are for sale at ftn art ) prints showed within the limit of the use of only black and white so many detail and shades that come alive as soon as you put them on a wall. So far the earliest of history on Le Roy and me as a collector.
2 years ago , at the november sale of which i could not visit the viewing days, my interest was raised in the catalogue when i saw a description of an item that looked to be an early print by Guillaume Le Roy. The description was not that clear but i recognized his graphic signature. I placed a written bid and i won the item…… picked it up at the auctionhouse and discovered it was a genuine Guillaume Le Roy . …. a Triptych.
Two folding panels covered on both sides with etchings and in the middle another 2 etchings. In total 6 etchings and another discovery….it was signed, numbered and dated. very hard to discover the signature, but it was there , together with the other edition information ( see the photograph with the item).
One problem, i do not have the place to present it properly, so decided to put it up for sale and now it is available for the true admirer who values and cherishes Le Roy works too.
