”The home of the Philosopher”
Etching, 13 x 13 cm
Bo Cronqvist

I work in a printing studio of my own in Lund. I work with three or four colour aquatint etchings printed from three or four copper plates. I also work with oil paintings, mostly in traditional glazing techniques. The etchings often depicting  single objects in a landscape, my paintings mostly representing human beings.
