Dance of Death in Seven Tempos (Dood- Dans in Zeven Tempos) -  EEKMAN

Dance of Death in Seven Tempos (Dood- Dans in Zeven Tempos)
NICOLAS (NICO) EEKMAN
Belgian, (1889-1973)
Woodcuts, 1924, edition 200. each woodcut 10 3/4 x 6. Signed in red ink with the artist's monogram on the left and signed in pencil, lower right. This set of seven woodcuts (plus title page) consists of fine, uniform impressions in very good condition. The margins are full as issued. This masterful Belgian expressionist work is printed on one sheet of Toshi paper and presented in an accordian fold, with the original presentation wrapper. Eekman was born in Brussels and settled in Paris in 1920. He exhibited widely in Europe and was quite friendly with Mondrian and Signac. He was very active as a painter and woodblock artist and also showed his prints in Pittsburgh, Los Angeles, Toronto and Chicago. (There's a wonderful web site which has been organized by the artist's daughter, Luce: nicolaseekman.com.) As seen in the work of Henri van Straten, Victor Delhez and Nicolas Eekman, among others, a macabre and thoroughly captivating sense of humor often pervades Belgian aesthetics during the 1920s and 1930s. James Ensor is best known and certainly an early inspiration, but there were many other printmakers whose work stands out. This is particulary evident in the woodcut medium and Eekman's version of "danse macabre" is exemplary.

Woodcut, 1950, Jakob Smits Museum retrospective catalog # 12, edition unknown. 15 x 11 1/8 in. Initialed in the block. Signed and titled in pencil. This is a superb impression printed on off-white wove paper. The margins are full and the condition is excellent. This entertaining, post-war image shows the lighter side of Herckenrath's art. The Jakob Smits Museum held a retrospective of his work in 1977 with an accompanying catalogue. The early work is detailed in Karel Horemans 1941 book, Antoon Herckenrath, Houtsnijder. We are certain editions were rather small given the overall scarcity of the prints in today's market.
