Claude Weisbuch (French, 1927-2014).
The title is "Battle of the horsemen". It should be a color etching according to this Danish ad:
The numbered edition is 300. Yours is an epreuve d'artiste (EA). That is artist's proof (AP) in English.

I would have taken it for a lithograph, not a serigraph. The colours does not blend that way in a serigraph. In a lithograph or an etching one color can have (or give the impression by density) of lighter and darker shades. With a serigraph you have one screen for each shade of color. So the brown parts for instance should have been made with at least two different screens in a serigraph.

I don't see a work study but a deliberate dense, chaotic composition. The gentlemen upper and lower right could be Rembrandt and da Vinci in horror or disbelief, showing that the artist knows what he is doing.

Here is another etching (or more correctly: a drypoint) from Weisbuch:

Just wanted to say that I love this exquisite rendition of horses; note the eyes, nostrils and hooves. It's very Asian in Feel; anthropomorhic, as though they were thinking logically as Humans. Re: Japanese Master, Hokusai!
