Sprokkelend Kind (Young Girl Gathering Sticks) -  TOOROP

Sprokkelend Kind (Young Girl Gathering Sticks)
JAN TOOROP
Dutch, (1858-1928)
Drypoint, 1899, Verbeek/Rijksmuseum 47 (iii/III), edition unknown. 6 1/16 x 7 3/8 in. Signed and dated in the plate. Signed in ink lower right (the signature is a bit faint as is often the case with Toorop's prints.) This is a very good impression with plate tone and with traces of burr in the water and on her legs and hair. Printed on a smooth cream Japanese paper, the margins are wide and probably full. The third state shows just the suggestion of the girl at right who had been added in state two. Boats and clouds are also added in the third state along the horizon line. The print is now signed and dated in the plate. This charming print was done along the Dutch coast at Katwijk aan Zee.

La Procession à Watermael -  TYTGAT

La Procession à Watermael
EDGARD TYTGAT
Belgian, (1879-1957)
Woodcut, 1919, Taillaert 41 (planche 1); edition 60 (50?) in black and white. 5 7/8 x 7 7/8 in. Signed, dated (1921) and numbered in pencil. This is a fine impression printed on thin Japanese paper. The margins are full. The condition is very good overall other than occasional subtle spots of foxing and there's a printing crease in the upper left margin, apart from the image. This print is from his celebrated series, "Carrousels et Baraques" which was created in London in 1919. This is one of 50(60?) black and white impressions printed in 1925. (There were color editions as well.) Tytgat's style is both expressionist and charmingingly naive. He was interested in "scènes quotidiennes", popular tales, the circus and the the Flemish kermesse. He was a unique and gifted artist working as a painter and printmaker and the fine, early impressions of his prints are hard to find.

Merry-go-Round -  TYTGAT

Merry-go-Round
EDGARD TYTGAT
Belgian, (1879-1957)
Woodcut and linoleum cut printed in colors, 1918-1919, Taillaert 40 (planche 3), edition 45. 6 1/4 x 8 1/16 in. Signed, numbered and inscribed in pencil,"1er essai," and "épreuve d'artiste, Edgard Tytgat, London 1918." This is a superb, early impression with the text, before the later printings when the colors are not as vibrant and not as richly inked. The margins are full and the condition is excellent. "Carrousels and Baraques" is Tytgat's best known series of prints and this set of six works was extremely popular. There were multiple editions as well as impressions in black and white and in single colors. This superb impression is from the collection of Auguste Taevernier (1895-1976), (Lugt 3334) who was the author of a catalogue raisonné of James Ensor.

Caravans
EDGARD TYTGAT
Belgian, (1879-1957)
Woodcut and linoleum cut printed in colors, 1919, Taillaert 40, planche 6; edition 60. 6 x 8 in. Signed, dated "1925" and numbered in pencil. This is an exceptional impression printed on thin Japanese paper with the printed title just below the image. The margins are full and the condition is very good. (There a few soft wrinkles in the lower left corner of the margins.) This is one of six plates from Tytgat's most famous series, "Carrousels et Barques." This is the first edition of this print with later printings done unnumbered and in black and white only. Tytgat's style is both expressionist and charmingly naive. He was interested in "scènes quotidiennes," popular tales, the circus and the tradition of the Flemish kermesse. This impression is from the collection of Auguste Taevernier (1895-1976), (Lugt 3334), who was the author of a catalogue raisonné of James Ensor prints.

The condition is excellent. Van Dam lived and worked in Amersfoort where he was both an etcher, painter and a craftsman. His etchings often have a distinctive arts and crafts look as seen here. He was well know as a painter of children and city scenes.

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).

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.
