Composition with Green and Red - WOBBE ALKEMA
Medium: linoleum cut
Linoleum cut, 1926, Bool/Petersen G34, edition 75. 8 x 5 1/2 in. Signed and dated in pencil "26/78" and numbered "18/75." This is a fine impression with full margins. The condition is excellent. According to the raisonné, there was no edition printed in 1926 and eight proofs were pulled in 1958. This impression is from the 1978 edition of seventy-five. Even these 1978 impressions are not common today. Alkema was originally trained as a cabinetmaker and he eventually worked with an architectural firm in Groningen. He joined De Ploeg (albeit for a brief period) and produced many remarkable works of geometric abstraction in painting as well as printmaking. His paintings from the 1920s are important today and his prints are equally desirable. Alkema was primarily associated with the Belgian modernists such as Josef Peeters.
