Ask anything

  • Yannick Stiassny asked

    As an independent publisher, I would be interested in using one of Pyke Koch's artwork ("Daphne") to illustrate a book cover. Would you know who handles the rights of the artist and could provide me with an high resolution version of this painting?
    Thanks in advance for your kind answer.
    Best regards,

More information

This explicit dream image can be situated somewhere between
Surrealism and Magic Realism. It shows a pale woman with a pillow
surrounded by strange objects. The painting may be given an erotic
interpretation. The subject clearly fascinated Koch as he made
several versions of the painting, but none of them provides a
definitive explanation of its meaning.
