The Hintz House linocut

The Hintz House in Cluj-Napoca is a historical monument dated to the sixteenth century that housed the Baroque pharmacy of the city that is currently the History of Pharmacy Museum where I work. During the twentieth century it was owned by the Hintz family, hence the name of the monument. It seems a natural source of inspiration, thus my latest Etsy listing is a linocut depicting this architectural landmark.
The print is the second in a small series of three, in my opinion the best of the lot due to the particular color combination and effects. I have employed Van Eyck brown, red ochre, and black inks, applied by roller and by hand, and printed on white graphic paper.
