Art Brokerage: Laurent Schkolynk French Artist: b. 1953. Laurent Schkolnyk is one of the very few masters of the mezzotint medium -- anywhere in the world. His mezzotints are richly colored and his imagery is serene and beautiful. They are a "must have" for any serious art collector who strives for quality and value by a true master. Schkolnyk studied drawing and etching at the Beaux Arts School in Nantes, France, where he became a student of professor Guimezanes in 1971. He then initiated his study of the mezzotint technique. Since the 1980s most of his solo exhibitions have been in France and Japan. His works appear in the permanent collections of the Los Angeles County Museum and the Fine Arts Museum of San Francisco.
