Panis Angelicus - JAN TOOROP
Medium: lithograph printed in olive green with added pencil work, watercolor and white gouache, all by the artist
Lithograph printed in olive green with added pencil work, watercolor and white gouache, all by the artist, 1894, Spaanstra-Polak (Rijksmuseum) 5, edition unknown. 10 1/2 x 8 3/8 in. Signed and dated on the stone, lower left. Signed in pencil, lower right with the following added inscription by the artist, "Bij ge-werkt met kleuren en potlood, 1896" ('updated with color and pencil, 1896') This remarkable work is as much a drawing as a print: the title is added at the bottom in pencil with additional gouache and there's a drawn and hand-colored flower at the lower left; the decorative flower designs all over her dress from the waist down are all added in pencil; the flowers at right are heightened with white; the water in the background is hand-colored as is the lower right right foreground; and the main figure is highlighted extensively with white gouache as well as are the two smaller women to the right of her. This extraordinary work will be included in the forthcoming catalogue raisonne of the artist. The condition is very good. The margins are narrow and irregular and there is some light discoloration to the image. The borderline in the lower right has been redrawn near the inscription and there is a subtle trace of staining in the upper left corner of the image. This is an exceptional and unique work by Toorop from the 1890s.
