Auri Sacra Fames

screen print and gold leaf, limited edition, 35 x 35 cm, 2014

A series of limited edition prints loosely based on Franz Mehring's comment on Charles Dickens - the social critic who in his literary works exposed the destitution of the poorest English classes and yet in the last years of his life supposedly suffered from auri sacra fames - the unfortunate hunger for gold.

All prints can be ordered at info@tomaspenc.art
