De Zichter  (Harvester) -  DIJKSTRA

De Zichter (Harvester)
JOHAN DIJKSTRA
Dutch, (1896-1978)
Woodcut, 1924-25, edition unknown. 28 3/4 x 20 1/2 in. Signed in pencil and also inscribed "handdruck." A fine impression in very good condition. There are a few small printing creases showing mostly in the wide margins. The block for this large work was cut in 1924-25 and very few impressions were taken. This is from the second printing in 1957-58 with the addition of "handdruk" in pencil. Some later impressions are known which were printed on thin paper and without the added inscription. Dijkstra was a founding member of the Groningen art society known as "De Ploeg." This Dutch expressionist movement was inspired by Kirchner among others.

Street Scene with Lady in a Hat -  DIJKSTRA

Street Scene with Lady in a Hat
JOHAN DIJKSTRA
Dutch, (1896-1978)
Woodcut, circa 1925-27, edition unknown but quite small. 20 1/2 x 15 in. Signed in pencil lower right and inscribed 'epreuve," lower left. This is a superb, early impression printed on tan paper. The margins are substantial and the condition is fine. Dijkstra was a founding member of the Dutch expressionist movement known as "De Ploeg," (The Plow) which was established in Groningen in 1918. Indeed, expressionism was international. Dijkstra, along with Jan Wiegers, Jan Altink and others, were keenly aware of the German contingent of the expressionist movement and Wiegers became very close friends with Kirchner while he was living in Davos, Switzerland. Dutch expressionism is often overlooked but it represents an integral part of early 20th century Dutch artistic heritage. The Groninger Museum today possesses a large collection of prints, drawings and paintings by these artists. This is an exceptional and rare woodcut certainly printed in a very small edition. Dijkstra's best work, as seen here, clearly reflects the influence of Kirchner but also shows an artist with his own compelling vision. De Ploeg prints were printed in small editions due to the rather limited audience at the time.
