Le Soleil -  SCHELFHOUT

Le Soleil
Drypoint, 1918, Zandvoort catalogue # 70, edition 20 in two states. 7 3/4 x 7 3/4 in. Signed and dated in pencil. This is a superb impression with full margins. The condition is excellent. This impression inscribed "2st." meaning second state (of two). Schelfhout excelled in the drypoint medium and his best work consisted of these subtle, modernist landscapes which remind us of the early work of Mondrian and also the prints of Jan Toorop. In fact, Schelfhout shared a studio with Mondrian in Paris and he helped introduce cubist aesthetics to Holland. His graphic work is included in the catalogue, The Cubist Print, 1981.
