Swimming Fish - J. G. VELDHEER - woodcut printed in colors

Dutch, (1866-1954)

Woodcut printed in colors, probably 1915, very small edition. 19 5/8 x 15 1/2 in. Unsigned. This is a fine impression of this extremely rare print. The paper is a fibrous Japanese mounted to an early support paperboard. The margins measure about 3/4 inches all around. Veldheer was profoundly influence by Japanese prints and he created a small group of fish woodcuts around 1915. The influence of Hiroshige (1797-1858) is clearly evident. Veldheer's color woodcuts are now very rare and were certainly printed in small editions. (See: Japanese Invloed op Nederlandse Kunst, Imitatie et Inspiratie, van 1650 tot Heden, Rijksmuseum,(1991), Ch. van Rappard-Boon, et al., pages 132-134.)      SOLD
