Geometric Abstraction - JOZEF PEETERS
Medium: linocut on grey paper
Linocut on grey paper, 1921, edition unknown but certainly small. 7 7/8 x 6 3/4 in. Unsigned. This is a fine proof impression before the monogram in the lower left corner. The paper is a gray wove and the margins are somewhat irregular. The condition is fine. This compelling image was published in the set "Map met 6 Linos" (1921) by De Sikkel. Complete sets are exceedingly rare today and these proofs are before publication. This work epitomizes the Belgian avante-garde printmaking aesthetic of the 1920s which relies on bold geometric images often interspersed with typography and strong color combinations. Peeters, along with Edmond van Dooren, Floris Jespers, Victor Servranckx and others, defined a national movement which is also evidenced in their paintings and the occasional sculpture. Provenance: Flor Bex, former Director of the Museum of Contemporary art in Antwerp and a celebrated author on this subject.
