In 1973, a printmaking studio in Venice – Centro Internazionale Della Grafica Venezia – commissioned nineteen artists to respond to Venice. The portfolio, titled Venice Yesterday Today Tomorrow, brings together senior Italian artists. Disparate in style and philosophy, these works present a portal into the lineage, tensions and desires of Venice, once the heart of Western art.

Like a venetian blind, Richard Antohi’s ‘Untitled (Doge’s Palace)’ superimposes two images over one another. One is the iconic Doge’s Palace in Venice – a temple of history and culture – the other, a pink silhouette, perhaps of a woman. Masculine and feminine, the future and past fuse in style.

From a fascinating period and place, this work will make a rich addition to one’s collection of twentieth century art.
