Man Harvesting -  ALTINK

Man Harvesting
JAN ALTINK
Dutch, (1885-1971)
Etching with drypoint, 1931, from a very small edition. 7 7/8 x 10 1/8 in. Signed and dated in pencil. This is a fine impression with probably the full margins. The condition is fine. (The two edges of the platemark, verso, are professionally reinforced due to the intense pressure of the plate from printing.) Altink was born, raised and studied in Groningen and this is a view of the countryside where he lived. He was a founding member of the Dutch expressionist group called "de Ploeg" which means both "plow" and "team". The subject of this print is very appropriate given the meaning of "de Ploeg." In fact, most of Altink's etchings show a deeply bitten plate and his lithographs are consistently dark and dramatic. Provenance: C.J.M. Rolink.

This large and dynamic work depicts a fox hunting scene and is a masterpiece of Grosvenor School linocut printmaking. Provenance: Osborne Samuel, London; private collection, Massachusetts.

The inspiration for this lovely print was a garden at Hillside, Lydia Coonley Ward's home in Wyoming, New York. (Note: This is a Baumann replica frame of exceptional quality.
