      . Aquarell und Feder in Grau, auf Bütten mit Wasserzeichen: C & I Honig (vgl. W.A. Churchill, Watermarks in Paper. Nieuwekoop de Graaf Publishers, 1990 (Reprint), Nr. 99), links unten signiert und datiert "(D)uncker del: 1775". 27,8:21,8 cm. - Löchlein innerhalb der Darstellung restauriert, rechte untere Ecke ergänzt.

Hackert unterrichtet Dunker und beide reisen 1765 nach Paris zur weiteren Ausbildung. Im Hause Johann Georg Willes, wo er verkehrt, knüpft Dunker Freundschaft mit den Schweizer Künstlern Sigmund Freudenberger,Johann Weber und Adrian Zingg. 1772 verläßt Dunker Paris, geht nach Basel, um dort als Reproduktionsstecher tätig zu sein, was ihn nicht befriedigt. 1773 besucht er seinen Freund S. Freudenberger in Bern, der ihn anregt, für die zahlreichen Kunstliebhaber in Bern Zeichnungen von der näheren Umgebung der Stadt anzufertigen. 1775 heiratet Dunker eine Bernerin, das Paar hat 15 Kinder, von denen allerdings 9 früh sterben. Die Folgen der Revolution in Frankreich wirken sich auch auf die Nachbarländer aus. In der Schweiz geht der blühende Tourismus zurück und die Auftragslage verschlechtert sich für Dunker und andere rapide. Er stirbt völlig verarmt in Bern. Mehrere vergleichbare Arbeiten Dunkers sind abgebildet in: Katalog "Balthasar Anton Dunker 1746 - 1807". Bern, Kunstmuseum, 1990/91.

"'Biotherm' is the last long poem of Frank O'Hara, whose accidental death in 1966 at age forty deprived America of one of its most vital and innovative poets. The poet and critic Bill Berkson, to whom the poem is addressed, provided an essay and compiled a glossary to explicate the references in the poem and to recount the circumstances of its writing. The artist Jim Dine knew O'Hara and admired his work. Challenged by O'Hara's brilliant experimentation in 'Biotherm', Dine's prints pay a vibrant homage to the poet and engage themes in the poem. Biotherm, a true livre d'artiste, is the sixth collaboration between Jim Dine and Andrew Hoyem" (Arion Press catalogue).

        Poems of W. B. Yeats. Selected and Introduced by Helen Vendler & with Six Etchings by Richard Diebenkorn

      4to. San Francisco: Arion Press, 1990. 4to, xxv, 171, (1, colophon)pp. With six full-page etchings. Original quarter red morocco & dark green cloth, matching cloth & board slipcase. As new. Limited to 400 numbered copies signed by Diebenkorn, this copy complete with the prospectus and the extra pamphlet by Vendler ?Yeats?s Paradises?. A beautifully designed and printed version of Yeats, perhaps the best of all and certainly the finest illustrated edition, with haunting etchings by the world-famous artist Diebenkorn. ?In one of his last ambitious print series, done in 1990, he represented variations on the theme of a coat on a hanger. The late etchings, meant to illustrate a luxury edition book of poems by W.B. Yeats published by San Francisco's Arion Press, constitute a kind of valedictory gesture.? (Diebenkorn Foundation). One of the scarcest of the Arion Press books, and surely one of the best.
