MARKUS PRACHENSKY  2011 - 2021

Portfolio of ten prints

 

The occasion of the tenth anniversary of  Markus Prachensky’s death 

the idea came up to publish a portfolio with ten prints – one sujet for every year.

Valerio Carini and I  made a selection from these paper works and the Stamperia Carini 

printed them during the last years. It is a tribute to my late husband.

MArkus Prachensky Etruria

MARKUS PRACHENSKY
 

Etruria

IN MEMORIAM
 

At the end of the 1970ies my husband Markus Prachensky watched a documentary film on Television about the Etruscans. Of course, he knew a lot about the Etruscan history and especially the Etruscan art. But he never had seen pictures from the Necropolises with the graves, the tumuli and painted tombs. Thus we were traveling for the next years criss-cross through the Etruscan Italy, we were several times at Norchia to see the temple-tombs cut in rocks, the Necropolises of Orvieto, Sutri, Sovana, Vulci, Cerveteri, and, of course, the Necropolis of Tarquinia with their impressive paintings in the graves.

 

From 1980-1984 Prachensky worked in his studio on the paintings titled Etruria, Etruria meridionale, Etruria Blues, Etruria orizontale.

 

Valerio Carini, who has already printed several editions of Prachensky’s graphic works and who particularly fell in love with the Etruscan Paintings, convinced him to publish a portfolio of six prints from the Etruria-series in a limited edition.

 

After my husband’s death Valerio Carini and I felt that it was important to edit this portfolio Etruria in memoriam Markus Prachensky.
