Boerenerf (Barnyard) - JAN ALTINK
Drypoint, 1924, small edition; proofs only. 8 x 9 3/4 in. Signed and dated in pencil, lower right. This is a superb impression of this rare print. The margins are full and the condition is fine apart from a smudge/ light stain in the right margin. Altink was born, raised and studied in Groningen and this is a view in the countyside where he lived. He was a founding member of the Dutch expressionist group known as "de Ploeg" and his best work was done during the 1920s and 1930s. He produced a number of woodcuts, lithographs and especially intaglio prints which he printed in very small editions.
