De Zichter (Harvester) - JOHAN DIJKSTRA
Woodcut, 1924-25, edition unknown. 28 3/4 x 20 1/2 in. Signed in pencil and also inscribed "handdruck." A fine impression in very good condition. There are a few small printing creases showing mostly in the wide margins. The block for this large work was cut in 1924-25 and very few impressions were taken. This is from the second printing in 1957-58 with the addition of "handdruk" in pencil. Some later impressions are known which were printed on thin paper and without the added inscription. Dijkstra was a founding member of the Groningen art society known as "De Ploeg." This Dutch expressionist movement was inspired by Kirchner among others.
