Antonio Wehrli - Ulrich von Lichtensteins grosses Abenteuer - 10cm x 16cm - Acrylic on Antique Print by U von Heyden on MDF - 2020
Ulrich von Liechtenstein (ca. 1200 – 26 January 1275) was a German minnesinger and poet of the Middle Ages. He wrote poetry in Middle High German and was author of noted works about how knights and nobles may lead more virtuous lives. Ulrich was a member of a wealthy and influential ministerialis family from Liechtenstein in Styria.
The base of this artwork is a print by U. von Heyden from the late 19th century.
Antonio Wehrli mounted this antique print onto a 5mm MDF plate. He then painted his signature style gravity flow over it to increase depth and beauty, thus creating a new conceptual artwork.
Signed, dated and titled on verso by the artist Antonio Wehrli
