Michael de Montaigne

Michael de Montaigne


Inspired by the thoughts of
Montaigne in his Essays and other works ( and expertly illuminated by Sarah Bakewell), was the motivation behind my depiction of Montaigne with the tower in which he composed so much of his writing.

Images of a working drawing and a couple prints at different proof stages of this etching and aquatint on a 15x10 cm zinc plate. Hoping to try some additions of colour in near future and making final adjustments.
