Condition Report: Signed and dated “Ilse Noor 1982” on lower right Inscribed “3/XV Merapi” in pencil on lower edge of paper

Notes: The etching of fine lines, the gradual change of tones in this piece and the sheer simplicity of it is breathtaking. Ilse Noor has been noted for being fond of nature, music, poetry and the like and this fondness has been transmuted into art. This surreal piece, however, speaks volumes not only because of the title and the minute details but the emotions she brings into it, and the viewer instantly captures them. The almost- nostalgic colouring to it makes the yearning for something so palpable. That ‘something’ that is yearned for is completely subjective – is it a yearning for an old, familiar yet dearly-missed place or is it a yearning for calmness, solitude and refuge? Born in Wipperfurth, Germany in 1941, Ilse Noor studied graphic art at the College of Art in Koln and then enhanced her techniques at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munchen. She migrated to Malaysia upon meeting her husband, where she became one of the famous printmaking artists. All her works are manually executed, printed, numbered, titled and signed in pencil on her own.
