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.

Two White Egrets (Twee Zilverreigers) -  VAN HOYTEMA

Two White Egrets (Twee Zilverreigers)
THEO VAN HOYTEMA
Dutch, (1863-1917)
Lithograph with embossing, 1898, Rijksmuseum/de Groot 89 (i/II); edition unknown. 17 1/2 x 13 1/4 in. Signed on the stone, lower right. This is a superb impression printed on chine appliqué. The margins are full and the condition is very good. (There's a repaired split in the top margin and one at the right margin, center, both well away from the image. There's a tiny scuff to the chine, lower left, just to the edge of the image.) This iconic Dutch image, along with "Five Angora Rabbits," are from Hoytema's best know series called "Animal Studies" ('Dierstudies'), published as a set of five works in 1898. Hoytema was the subject of a major retrospective exhibition and catalogue organized by the Gemeentemuseum/Drents Museum in the Hague in 1999. This important work is illustrated and discussed on pages 92-93 of Holland on Paper in the Age of Art Nouveau by Cliff Ackley (2014).

This is a fine impression printed on chine applique, as published as plate 6 of "Animal Studies." The margins are trimmed to about 1 1/4 in. and the condition is good other than for residue of an old adhesive on the margin edges, verso.

Animal Studies (Dierstudies) -  VAN HOYTEMA

Animal Studies (Dierstudies)
THEO VAN HOYTEMA
Dutch, (1863-1917)
Lithographs, 1898, Rijksmuseum / de Groot 84-90 (i/II); edition unknown. Each image is about 16 1/2 x 13 in. (sheet size 27 3/4 x 18 5/8 in.) Each print is signed on the stone and bears the printed number below in the lower right corner, 1-6. This is the very rare complete set of six lithographs plus the title page (which shows small, beautifully drawn lithographic vignettes relating to the six prints.) Published in a cloth-wrapped portfolio with leather spine, the cover is embossed with the title in a small art nouveau style vignette, upper right. The impressions are all fine and are printed on chine appliqué (except the frontispiece). The margins are full. The upper left corners of the sheets are slightly bent and the plates have assorted degrees of foxing in the support sheets only. This varies from sheet to sheet and is very typical of the prints we've had from this set over the years. This iconic series is often considered the high point of Hoytema's achievements in lithography. The two best know works; Five Angora Rabbits and Two White Egrets, are both printed with embossing. This complete set is from the collection of Simon Moulijn (1866-1948), also a well know Dutch lithographer (Lugt 1849a). (Each sheet bears his stamp in the lower right corner.) We have not seen a complete Dierstudies set for sale in about ten years.

JOHANNES GRAADT VAN ROGGEN
Dutch, (1867-1959)
Woodcut, 1922, Nijmeegs Museum catalogue E19, edition unknown. 15 x 19 1/2 in. Signed in the block with the artist's monogram, lower left. This is a fine, luminous impression printed on tissue-thin Japanese paper. The margins are full and the condition is very good. (There's soft creasing here and there as a result of the printing process.) Graadt van Roggen was an etcher and woodcut artist and his best work, as shown here, is decidedly expressionist in nature. A few of his woodcuts were printed in color. He lived and worked in Bergen and he was a deaf from an early age. Ex-collection: Nijmeegs Museum, Holland.
