Buchta, Wolfgang und Konrad Planegger: Buch Hiob
Wolfgang Buchta wanted to realize The Book of Job together with the Viennese artist colleague Konrad Planegger, two figurative artists in dialogue.
After Planegger's death, Buchta did it alone on the basis of the already finished stones and drawings: Intense pages with abstract hints of Bible painting, the text printed in the Luther translation of 1534 as a handwriting in the transfer printing process and the images in a combination of different printing methods.
Book of Job, German, etching, colour lithographs, dry point, offset printing, water colour, 2 pages gilded, hardcover, 64p, 15.4 x 11 inch, Ed. of 20 + 4ea, num., sign., Wien, 2016
