The 2019 Gertrude Edition is typical of London-based Renee So's long-standing exploration and repetition of the Bellarmine, a domestic vessel depicting a bearded man with origins in Rhineland during the 16th and 17th century. Created especially for Gertrude Contemporary, this sculptural edition of 50 has been individually hand-cast in black Jesmonite from a clay master, individually hand fabricated by Nick Johns.
