About this artwork

Primarily recognized for his expertise in prints and engraving, Assadour apprenticed under the esteemed engraver Lucien Coutaud in Paris. The composition of this print is centred around a circular shape, serv- ing as the primary focal point of the work. A human figure, resembling a wooden figurine or mannequin commonly used for anatomical studies, is positioned amidst straight lines suggestive of analytical thought, appearing to be part of a study. Numbers on the left side of the work are mirrored. Additionally, the notation “98/200” likely alludes to the work’s number, part of a series of 200 works. The overall impression conveyed by the artwork suggests humans grappling with the effects of rapid industrialization, which often leads to feelings of alienation.
