Mehling '92 A.WB-A-/26 original signed abstract watercolour
Hofheim: 1992. Original watercolour on handmade paper. This sombre abstract work is a form of Informalism in charcoal grey tones and includes melted candle wax. All Mehling's work remained untitled, though the works do state the year of origin, usually the month and often the techniques used. This work was done in 1992. As Mehling was also a pharmacist in his earlier years, he enjoyed experimenting with mixing his own paints, pigments and inks. An original by "the German master of the small format" (Haudenschild + Laubscher 1968). In distressed metallic painted wooden frame, under glass, with heavy white mount. Signed in pencil to bottom left.
Frame: 445 x 365 mm (17½ x 14¼ inches)). Visible art: 255 mm x 185 mm.
