Dancer - JAN HEIJSE
Woodcut, undated (probably about 1930), editon unknown. 7 7/8 x 4 1/4 in. Signed in pencil. Here we have a fine impression printed on fibrous Japanese paper. The margins are full and the condition is fine. (There are two original brown paper hinges at the top corners of the margins, away from the image.) Heijse lived and worked in Middelburg and Amsterdam. He was a student of C. J. W. Nuijs and studied at the Rijksakademie. He also took lessons from Jan Toorop. Heijse was known as a painter and illustrator and his woodcuts are quite well done with a flair for compelling design.
