The Starkly Poignant Prints of William Kentridge

“Wait once again for better people” reads a leaflet under a bouquet in William Kentridge‘s “Hyacinths (Wait Once Again for Better People)” (2020). It sums up how many activists feel right now — frustrated with bad people clinging to their power. The work is one of many thought provoking prints on view right now at Marian Goodman gallery in William Kentridge: Making Prints: Selected Editions 1998-2021.

William Kentridge leads Bonhams Post-War & Contemporary Art sale in London

LONDON.- For some the typewriter is simply a relic of the past, perhaps conjuring a nostalgic image in the imagination, but holding little significance. For others it is an intermediary object, allowing thoughts and words to become a tangible presence. For William Kentridge, it is a device to be used in more ways than one, and in Large Typewriters, which leads Bonhams Post-War & Contemporary Art sale on 24 March in London, he creates a dual image combining both the banal and the absurd, the real and the imagined. The imposing work has an estimate of £350,000 - 550,000.
