Street Scene with Large Tree - JAN WIEGERS
Etching, 1924, edition unknown. 9 3/4 x 7 3/4 in. Signed and dated in pencil, lower right. This is a superb impression of this deeply bitten plate. The margins are full and the condition is excellent. This intense etching mirrors Wiegers's powerful and dynamic work in the woodcut medium. He worked closely with Kirchner in Davos, Switzerland, and Wiegers's prints during the 1920s are an important chapter in the history of 20th century Dutch graphic art. The Dutch expressionist movement, known as "de Ploeg," flourished largely due to this Davos connection between Kirchner and Wiegers. Many other artists followed suite as the expressionist movement was clearly not confined to any precise geographical borders. In Holland, the movement was based in Groningen.
