Hnizdovsky, Jacques. TWELVE BIRDS. Tahir 196-203. Woodcuts, 1975. Portfolio, pebbled boards with string ties and paste-on label, folder with Title Page printed on front containing one page with a listing and desription of each bird, and twelve woodcuts, each signed, titled, dated and numbered 35/100 in pencil. Overall size of portfolio 12 x 16 inches, with the individual images in varying sizes. Published by Associated American Artists in 1975 in an edition of 100. The birds depicted are: Ostrich, Crowned Crane, Jacana, White Turkey, Bald Eagle, Pelican, Sage Grouse, Indian Wood Ibis, Barn Owl, Vulture, Lyre Bird, and Kiwi. In Very Fine condition throughout. As many of the portfolios have been dispersed as indivdual prints, complete sets are now uncommon. Hnizdovsky's unique ability to abstract, refine and stylize the essentials of a subject while still keeping it recognizable and projecting its particular character, is nowhere more strongly revealed than in this collection. Each bird is presented with humor, elegance and accuracy of detail. A beautiful and desirable set.
