Portrait of the Composer Hans van den Burg (Portret van de Componist H.van den Burg)
JAN TOOROP
Dutch, (1858-1928)
Drypoint, 1902, Verbeek/Rijksmuseum 63, edition unknown. 7 x 9 1/2 in. Signed and dated in the plate, upper right. Toorop also added the name of the sitter to the plate. This is a very fine impression from the posthumous edition of 25 impressions printed just after Toorop died in 1928. His red atelier stamp is in the lower margin at right (Lugt 2401a). The margins are full and the condition is fine. The print is numbered from this edition in the lower left. Lifetime impressions from this engaging portrait are very rare.

Feeënsprookje (Fairy Tale)
JAN TOOROP
Dutch, (1858-1928)
Woodcut printed in color, 1895, Verbeek (Rijksmuseum) 9, edition unknown. 4 1/4 x 2 5/8 in. Signed, dated (twice) and inscribed in ink. This is a superb impression of this extremely rare work which is here printed on Japanese paper. The margins are wide and probably full. The condition is quite good apart from very slight darkening of the sheet from light exposure. This impression is dedicated, "aan Hermine la Fontaine, liefs van, ('love from') Jan Toorop, 1926" (He also wrote in ink, "1896 fec." referring to the date when the impression was printed.) Hermine la Fontaine was a close friend of the artist. The catalogue suggests the influence of Lucien Pissarro and states there are impressions known in brown-black, green, green-brown and brown.

Strandvonders (Beachgoers collecting objects)
JAN TOOROP
Dutch, (1858-1928)
Woodcut, 1903, Verbeek/Rijksmuseum 70, edition 25. 4 x 4 7/8 in. Initialed and dated in the block, lower right. This is a fine impression printed on very thin white Japanese paper. The margins are full and the condition is fine. (There's only a very faint suggestion of darkening within the original mat opening.) This endearing print is from a series of five 1903 woodcuts by Toorop which are extremely rare in early impressions. This is from the 1928 edition of twenty-five impressions printed by Ninaber van Eyben on this thin Japanese paper. The print is numbered on the original mat which we have in our possession. This woodcut relates to his drypoint from 1899 called Sprokkelend Kind (Verbeek/Rijksmuseum 47.) The location is Katwijk aan Zee at the Dutch coast.

This charming print shows the artist's daughter, Charley, with a view of the harbor at Katwijk aan Zee. This major work is illustrated and discussed on pages 188-189 of Holland on Paper in the Age of Art Nouveau (2014) by Cliff Ackley.

(Our impression is printed on an exceptionally large sheet of cream Japanese paper, 19 x 13 3/4"). This stellar impression is a duplicate from the Museum Boijmans van Beuningen and bears their stamp verso (Lugt 700a).

Drypoint, 1899, Verbeek/Rijksmuseum 47 (iii/III), edition unknown. 6 1/16 x 7 3/8 in. Signed and dated in the plate. Signed in ink lower right (the signature is a bit faint as is often the case with Toorop's prints.) This is a very good impression with plate tone and with traces of burr in the water and on her legs and hair. Printed on a smooth cream Japanese paper, the margins are wide and probably full. The third state shows just the suggestion of the girl at right who had been added in state two. Boats and clouds are also added in the third state along the horizon line. The print is now signed and dated in the plate. This charming print was done along the Dutch coast at Katwijk aan Zee.

La Procession à Watermael -  TYTGAT

La Procession à Watermael
EDGARD TYTGAT
Belgian, (1879-1957)
Woodcut, 1919, Taillaert 41 (planche 1); edition 60 (50?) in black and white. 5 7/8 x 7 7/8 in. Signed, dated (1921) and numbered in pencil. This is a fine impression printed on thin Japanese paper. The margins are full. The condition is very good overall other than occasional subtle spots of foxing and there's a printing crease in the upper left margin, apart from the image. This print is from his celebrated series, "Carrousels et Baraques" which was created in London in 1919. This is one of 50(60?) black and white impressions printed in 1925. (There were color editions as well.) Tytgat's style is both expressionist and charmingingly naive. He was interested in "scènes quotidiennes", popular tales, the circus and the the Flemish kermesse. He was a unique and gifted artist working as a painter and printmaker and the fine, early impressions of his prints are hard to find.

Merry-go-Round -  TYTGAT

Merry-go-Round
EDGARD TYTGAT
Belgian, (1879-1957)
Woodcut and linoleum cut printed in colors, 1918-1919, Taillaert 40 (planche 3), edition 45. 6 1/4 x 8 1/16 in. Signed, numbered and inscribed in pencil,"1er essai," and "épreuve d'artiste, Edgard Tytgat, London 1918." This is a superb, early impression with the text, before the later printings when the colors are not as vibrant and not as richly inked. The margins are full and the condition is excellent. "Carrousels and Baraques" is Tytgat's best known series of prints and this set of six works was extremely popular. There were multiple editions as well as impressions in black and white and in single colors. This superb impression is from the collection of Auguste Taevernier (1895-1976), (Lugt 3334) who was the author of a catalogue raisonné of James Ensor.

Caravans
EDGARD TYTGAT
Belgian, (1879-1957)
Woodcut and linoleum cut printed in colors, 1919, Taillaert 40, planche 6; edition 60. 6 x 8 in. Signed, dated "1925" and numbered in pencil. This is an exceptional impression printed on thin Japanese paper with the printed title just below the image. The margins are full and the condition is very good. (There a few soft wrinkles in the lower left corner of the margins.) This is one of six plates from Tytgat's most famous series, "Carrousels et Barques." This is the first edition of this print with later printings done unnumbered and in black and white only. Tytgat's style is both expressionist and charmingly naive. He was interested in "scènes quotidiennes," popular tales, the circus and the tradition of the Flemish kermesse. This impression is from the collection of Auguste Taevernier (1895-1976), (Lugt 3334), who was the author of a catalogue raisonné of James Ensor prints.

Old Lime Tree (Oude Linde)
WILLEM JAN VAN DAM
Dutch, (1895-1964)
Etching and aquatint, undated (probably 1920s), edition unknown but perhaps 50-100. 14 x 12 1/2 in. Signed and titled in pencil. This is a fine, luminous impression with wide margins. The condition is excellent. Van Dam lived and worked in Amersfoort where he was both an etcher, painter and a craftsman. His etchings often have a distinctive arts and crafts look as seen here. He was well know as a painter of children and city scenes.

Tropon -  VAN DE VELDE

Tropon
HENRY VAN DE VELDE
Belgian, (1863-1957)
Lithograph printed in colors, 1897 (printed 1898), edition 1100 from Pan, Volume 4, No.1. 12 1/4 x 8 in. Signed below the image with his name in printed text, as issued. This is a very good impression with full margins. The condition is very good apart from time toning to the outer edges of the sheet and a tiny blemish in the image near the bottom center. Printed by Leutert & Schneidewind, Dresden. Published by Genossenschaft Pan GmbH, Berlin. This captivating, iconic art nouveau image is a reduced version of the large poster van de Velde created of a rather mundane subject; an advertisement for the Tropon food supplement, a protein processed from eggs. After much research, it's been determined that the image depicts a machine which is shown separating the egg yolks (on top) from the whites (on the bottom).

Linocut, 1920-21, small edition (perhaps 50 impressions). 10 x 7 1/4 in. Signed in pencil, lower right. This is a fine impression in fine condition with full margins.

This work was published by the Antwerp circle of artists known as Het Overzicht (The Overview) of which Jozef Peeters and Michel Seuphor were members. They also published works by Karel Maes. van Doesburg (De Stijl) was a prominent influence. This potent image represents the best work of the artist.
