Dark Hall Mansion Launches New Seminal Film Series Project With “Harry Potter & The Sorcerer’s Stone”

Rowling released the first novel, in a series of seven, “Harry Potter & The Sorcerer’s Stone.”  The series would go on to become one of the most beloved in all of literature and would raise J.K. Rowling to unprecedented heights as an author smashing all types of records.

As always, the essence of DHM’s Seminal Film Series print releases is to showcase a key artist’s personal contribution’s to a notable film, and the pairing of the first film that cinematically introduced us all to Harry, Ron, Hermione and the extraordinary world of Hogwarts finds a most gifted collaborator indeed via Gerhard’s gift for rendering highly intricate and detailed tableau via the handcrafted and labor intensive care of his arrestingly meticulous crosshatching technique.

Gerhard’s prints beautifully illustrate the singular moment when first year students initially approach Hogwarts, all mood and tone his print’s exquisite detailing is nothing short of beautiful, particularly when the sheer mastery of his cross hatching elegance is viewed up close. Gerhard also knew capturing the tale itself was paramount to us within this print, and we simply loved the moonlit, pensive, and meditative nature of Harry and Hedwig quietly reflecting on the life that was and the world that was just now beginning to open before them.

Gerhard’s gorgeous blue Standard limited edition print is pure emotional resonance, while his Variant limited edition print underscores and showcases Gerhard’s extraordinary skills with light, shadow, and the finessed beauty of just what cross hatching can yield, and truly Gerhard’s skills stagger the eye with the sheer minutiae he deploys in creating his worlds.
