De Ophaalbrug, Edam -  NIEUWENKAMP

De Ophaalbrug, Edam
Etching, 1916, Nieuwenkamp E 176, edition unknown. 15 1/2 x 19 3/8 in. Signed, titled and inscribed in pencil "E176." This is a fine, luminous impression printed on cream-colored Japanese paper. The margins are wide and the condition is very good. (There's slight ripping to the sheet and a faint suggestion of old adhesive in the outer margins from a previous face mat.) This large, late work epitomizes Nieuwenkamp's stylish and highly descriptive approach to printmaking. He would usually sign his prints with his name and "épreuve d'artiste," as seen here, and this impression is also referenced "E 176" which stands for etsen (etching) and number 176 from a total of 192 different recorded etchings. His editions are generally quite small; certainly few than 50 impressions and probably far less than that. Nieuwenkamp was the first European artist to travel to Bali and produced considerable work based on his multiple trips there.

Etching, 1898, Nieuwenkamp E41, edition only 6. 12 1/2 x 9 3/8 in. Signed and titled in pencil. This is an especially fine, well-inked impression printed on cream-colored laid paper. The margins are wide and probably untrimmed. The condition is quite good. This charming view shows the harbor of Enkhuizen and the Dromedais Tower on the left. (This building dates from the 16th century and was a city gate as well as a watchtower for the busy harbor.) The sky is gracefully articulated and the result is a delicate, atmospheric impression of great beauty. Very few impressions were printed from this plate according to the catalog listing.

(Note: the plate bears the date 1914 but the catalogue states otherwise. Perhaps the decorative border was added later. In any event, this is a very rare print.)

Signed and titled in pencil and also inscribed, "épreuve d'artiste." This is a fine impression printed on sturdy laid paper. The margins are wide and probably full. This exemplary work is a fine example of Dutch art nouveau ("nieuwe kunst") printmaking where art and decoration come together in a refined and elegant way. This is the third state as described but we've had an impression with a decorative floral border added with a date of 1914. The catalogue lists a total of only thirteen impressions over the three states and even with the decorative border impression(s) added, this is a very rare print.

Rouen Cathedral (Kathedraal Rouaan) -  NIEUWENKAMP

Rouen Cathedral (Kathedraal Rouaan)
Etching, 1910-1911, Nieuwenkamp E119 (iv/IV); one of four proofs in this state. 16 15/16 x 14 1/8 in. Signed and dated in pencil. Also inscribed "4 staat. 4 proefdrukken. 25 Aug 1911." This is a fine, richly inked impression printed on cream wove paper. The margins have been trimmed to about 1/2" on all sides, but otherwise, the condition is excellent. This exceptional work is a tour de force of etching and shows that the artist could work effectively on a large scale and with great detail. The total edition is unknown but we believe it to be rather small, perhaps fewer than 20 impressions. In fact, most of Nieuwenkamp's etchings were printed in modest quantities with various proofs along the way in different states.
