FRANS EVERBAG
Dutch, (1877-1947)

This is a fine, rich impression with full margins. The condition is fine apart from the slightest trace of an old mat line. This large work exemplifies Everbag's great skills as a color intaglio printmaker. He was producing these plates at a time when color prints were the exception in Holland and his color etchings were certainly among the best work done at the time. His earliest works were mezzotints after old masters. His mature work consists primarily of views of Amsterdam, flower studies, birds and other animals. His last important exhibition was at the Museum Kempenland in Eindhoven in 1988. Everbag's prints are consistently good and they are especially sought after by collectors in his native Holland.

Fantasy; Diverse Figures -  MESQUITA

Fantasy; Diverse Figures
SAMUEL JESSURUN DE MESQUITA
Dutch, (1868-1944)
Etching, 1927, van Es D120, edition 15. 3 3/4 x 9 1/4 in. Signed and numbered in pencil. This is a fine impression in fine condition with full margins. This is a nice example of Mesquita's "sensitivic" caricature etching style which began about 1910 and lasted until 1940. He produced these works in small editions and they were done primarily for fun but they also have mystical and religious overtones and are ripe with social commentary. They are unique in the history of Dutch art and are an important aspect of Mesquita's graphic work.

American, (1867-1950)
Woodcut printed in colors, circa 1920, Bakker 56a, edition unknown. 7 x 9 3/4 in. Signed in pencil, lower right, within the image. This is a superb, vibrant impression of this well known image.

In addition, the print and black paper are mounted at the top edge to a sturdy, tan matboard-like support. This is the original presentation as prepared by Patterson and we've seen this approach before. The condition is excellent. As viewed on page 20 of the Bakker retrospective catalogue from 1989, there's an oil study for this image as well as a charcoal and white pastel drawing.

Coast Cedars (2) -  PATTERSON

Coast Cedars (2)
MARGARET PATTERSON
American, (1867-1950)
Woodcut printed in colors, undated but probably about 1920., Bakker 58, edition 100. 7 1/8 x 10 1/8 in. Signed, titled and numbered (1/100) in pencil. This exceptional, vibrant impression is printed on the typical study, fibrous wove paper. There's a small spot of blue ink on the right edge of the image, most likely from the printing process. The margins are full apart from three small, similar rectangular cutaway areas on three sides. What sets this print apart is the depiction of snow on the tree limbs and foreground reflecting Patterson's interest in depicting changing seasons. We are not sure why the number (2) in next to the title. This exceptional arts and crafts image was probably done on Cape Cod, about the same time she produced such notable works as Summer Clouds, Windblown Trees and The Sands, Chatham.
