Tropon -  VAN DE VELDE

Tropon
HENRY VAN DE VELDE
Belgian, (1863-1957)
Lithograph printed in colors, 1897 (printed 1898), edition 1100 from Pan, Volume 4, No.1. 12 1/4 x 8 in. Signed below the image with his name in printed text, as issued. This is a very good impression with full margins. The condition is very good apart from time toning to the outer edges of the sheet and a tiny blemish in the image near the bottom center. Printed by Leutert & Schneidewind, Dresden. Published by Genossenschaft Pan GmbH, Berlin. This captivating, iconic art nouveau image is a reduced version of the large poster van de Velde created of a rather mundane subject; an advertisement for the Tropon food supplement, a protein processed from eggs. After much research, it's been determined that the image depicts a machine which is shown separating the egg yolks (on top) from the whites (on the bottom).

Compositie (Stilleven) Composition (Still Life)

Dutch, (1876-1923)
Woodcut, 1916, Huussen/van Paaschen-Louwerse 313, edition probably 30. 8 x 11 in. Signed in pencil, lower left. A superb impression printed on thin Japanese paper.

This avant garde work was certainly out of the mainstream of Dutch aesthetics at the time and she was influenced by Mondrian and the writings of Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925). She exhibited regularly in Germany through her connections with Herwarth Walden and Galerie der Sturm (Berlin) and her work was greatly admired there and acquired by collectors. Van Heemskerck also excelled in stained glass and received many commissions for this work. Impressions of this print are located in the Rijksprentenkabinet and the Stedelijk.

Five Angora Rabbits -  VAN HOYTEMA

Five Angora Rabbits
THEO VAN HOYTEMA
Dutch, (1863-1917)
Lithograph with embossing printed on chine appliqué, 1898, Rijksmuseum / de Groot 86 (i/II); edition unknown. 16 1/2 x 13 in. Signed on the stone, lower right. Signed in pencil, lower right. This is a good impression with wide margins. The condition is good. There's a small repaired break in the chine in the image from printing and there's foxing in the margins and somewhat on the verso. This is the first state with the number 2 in the lower right corner, which appears in the Animal Studies (Dierstudies) portfolio edition. For this remarkable print, the lithographic stone was actually incised by Hoytema to create a three-dimensional effect throughout the rabbits' fur. This print is a landmark image for Dutch graphic art during the 1890s and the influence of Japanese prints is readily apparent. This work is illustrated and discussed at length in Van Gogh to Mondrian, Dutch Works on Paper (2000), an exhibition organized jointly by the Boston Museum of Fine Arts and the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. In addition, the print is illustrated and discussed on pages 92-93 of Holland on Paper in the Age of Art Nouveau by Cliff Ackley (2014). Pencil signed impressions of this print are exceedingly rare.
