Seated Man before a Stove (Zittende Man voor Potkachel) -  LOEBER

Seated Man before a Stove (Zittende Man voor Potkachel)
Linoleum cut, circa 1926, edition 75. 11 7/8 x 9 3/4 in. Initialed in the block, lower right. Signed and numbered in pencil. This is a fine impression printed on thin Japanese paper. The margins are full. The condition is very good apart from minor soft wrinkles here and there in the margins. This stellar Dutch modernist image exemplifies De Stijl aesthetics and it's one of Loeber's best prints. This print is illustrated on page 36 of "Gedroomd Papier, Tekeningen en Prenten 1850-1935" by Ton Geerts (2010). Louise Marie 'Lou' Loeber studied at the Rijksacademie in Amsterdam from 1915-1918. Mondrian was a big influence along the way as was Bart van der Leck (who became a neighbor of hers in Blaricum.) In 1931, she married the artist Dirk Koning (1888-1978) whose work was somewhat similiar. Loeber's early prints are rare.
