Laurent Schkolnyk is one of the very few masters of the mezzotint medium -- anywhere in the world. Born in Paris in 1953, he has been a long-term staple in the Saper Galleries inventory.
His mezzotints are richly colored and his imagery is serene and beautiful. They are a "must have" for any serious art collector who strives for quality and value by a true master.
Schkolnyk studied drawing and etching at the Beaux Arts School in Nantes, France, where he became a student of professor Guimezanes in 1971. He then initiated his study of the mezzotint technique.
Since the 1980s most of his solo exhibitions have been in France and Japan. His works appear in the permanent collections of the Los Angeles County Museum and the Fine Arts Museum of San Francisco.
For more than 20 years Saper Galleries has been proud to make available to the world the mezzotints of Laurent Schkolnyk. There is no artist who has better command of the arduous medium.
