The Sculptor

Warrington Colescott

I bought this etching at the same estate sale where I purchased the “Southwest Pietá” by Luis Jiménez. I noticed this print as I walked out the door. It was a beautiful etching and I purchased it for far less than it is worth.

Once at home I inspected the artwork more closely and realized I had met the artist, Warrington Colescott. He has many ties to Madison and still lives in the area.

This print was framed in a 60s mid-century, modern wooden frame, which unfortunately could not be salvaged due to its condition. It did, however, make for a striking addition to the piece.
