Abend (Evening) -  THIEMANN

Abend (Evening)
Woodcut printed in colors, 1921, Merx 321, edition unknown. 14 7/8 x 8 1/8 in. Signed in the block with the artist's monogram. Signed in pencil, lower right. This is a superb, richly inked impression printed on Japanese paper. The margins are full and the condition is very good. (There's a bit of soft rippling in the margins.) We consider Thiemann to be underrated as a color woodcut artist. His last important exhibition was at Galerie Glockner, Cologne, from many years ago. His landscapes, florals and marine views are stunning and they have a distinctive European arts and crafts look which is appealing to this day. Like most woodcut artists working at that time, his editions are rather small.

Chrysanthemums -  THIEMANN

Chrysanthemums
Woodcut printed in colors, 1934, Merx 423, edition unknown. 18 1/2 x 13 1/2 in. Signed and titled in pencil. This is a superb impression in fine condition. The margins are substantial and the the sheet appears to be untrimmed. This large and impressive work shows a remarkable three-dimensional effect by means of embossing (gauffrage) of the flowers. The influence of Japanese printmaking cannot be understated.

Evening (Abend)
Woodcut printed in colors, 1921, Merx 321; edition unknown. 14 7/8 x 8 1/8 in. Signed in the block with the artist's monogram. Signed and titled in pencil. This is a superb, luminous impression in fine condition. The margins are narrow but this is probably the full, untrimmed sheet of Japanese paper. Thiemann was a master craftsman and this is a typical subject for him. He was best known for his woodcuts done in this illustrative, arts and crafts style.
