View of Bruges (Gezicht op Brugge) - WOJ NIEUWENKAMP
Woodcut, 1900, Nieuwenkamp H21, edition unknown. 6 1/4 x 12 3/8 in. Signed and dated in the block. Signed and titled in pencil. This is a fine impression printed on cream-colored Japanese paper. The margins are full and the condition quite good. Nieuwenkamp also produced an etched version of this engaging, beautifully composed subject. We don't know how many were printed, but this edition is certainly small, probably fewer than fifty impressions. In fact, a careful review of the catalogue raisonne shows that most of the artist's prints were printed in small numbers. Nieuwenkamp was a master craftsman and this work reflects his great skills as a woodcut artist during the Dutch art nouveau era, a movement referred to in Holland as "De Nieuwe Kunst."
