On offer is 'Dossier Solange' by Zwy Milshtein includes two original signed pen and ink drawings. This is a very extraordinary rare set of handmade engravings being the second signed original proofs set ["exemplaire no.2"] dated 1967 which was never offered for commercial sale together with two original pen and ink drawings both signed and dated 1967 by the artist. The Dossier is comprised of: an outer sleeve/box with hand drawn title treatment and graphic; inner hard cover title shell handwritten and drawn which is a duplicate of the outer hard cover; two original pen and ink drawings (not prints) signed by Milshtein, they are on one page, one on either side; on hand made textured art paper, 144mm x 172mm, twenty-two [22] French-folded pages on handmade, hand cut art paper (of the four sides of a French-fold there is an engraving front and one page with text and roman numeral thus two blank). Overall size: 282mm x 170mm. Eighteen [18] pages have de-bossed and the odd embossed engravings including the inside cover and text numbered I-XVIII, [the number V appears twice although it has a different etching on each page. Number XII is omitted.] Protective tissue throughout. The text and the eighteen engravings which accompany them together with the cover were all executed by Milshtein. The engravings were hand pressed by the artist and the original pages engraved after printing. The condition is very good with the exception of the spine on the inner hard cover being detached and taped. One or two etchings have very feint foxing spots (negligible). BIO NOTES: Zwy Milshtein is well known in France as a painter and as a master at the art of engraving. Milshtein was born in 1934 in Kichinev, the area now known as Moldovia. During the World War II his family emigrated to Russia, and then later returned to Romania. In 1948 Milshtein arrived in Israel, but later moved to Paris in 1955. Since that time he has received great acclaim for his etchings and engravings. Numerous exhibitions in Paris and abroad attest to his artistic skills. In the year 1970 Milshtein had an exhibition at ARC, the Museum of Modern Art, Paris, France. In 1978 a retrospective exhibition of his engravings was held at the Bibliotheque Nationale in Paris.
