Lot description
The etching, Ruth depicts Auerbach’s close friend Ruth Bromberg who was the subject of a series of painted and etched portraits by the artist. The present work is instantly recognizable as an Auerbach showing as it does the artist’s characteristic graphic style of layered and fractured lines which the artist uses to create uses to create an almost sculptural affect, but one imbued with great sensitivity and fragility.

The work is in mint condition and is unframed.
