The Pearl Diver (De Parelduiker) - RICHARD ROLAND HOLST - lithograph printed in black and gold on grey paper

RICHARD ROLAND HOLST
Dutch, (1868-1938)

Lithograph printed in black and gold on grey paper, 1918, small edition (this impression inscribed 13 7/8 x 16 1/2 in. Signed on the stone and signed in ink, lower right. This is a fine impression in fine condition. (Minor soft wrinkling in the margins and a pen mark at the bottom edge of the sheet.) Wide and probably full margins. Symbolically speaking, the pearl stands for the art object and is presented to the public by the artist (the diver). This large and dramatic print typifies the artist's great skills as a draughtsman. (Literature: F. Leidelmeijer & D. van der Cingel, Art Nouveau and Art Deco en Nederland, Amsterdam, 1983, p. 45, ill. 21.)      SOLD
