Untitled - PAUL JOOSTENS
Lithograph, 1922, edition unknown. 14 x 7 7/8 in. Signed and dated on the stone. This is a fine impression printed on VAN GELDER ZONEN laid paper. The margins are full with a deckle edge all around. The condition is excellent apart from a couple of paper imperfections, somewhat visible near the image. Joostens prints are very rare. This work relates closely to his sculpture and collages for which he is best known. He was also a poet. He met Mondrian in Paris in 1919 and was close to Paul van Ostaijen and Floris Jespers. He personifies the Belgian contingent of the Dada movement and was active with Ca Ira, the Belgian monthly magazine devoted to avant-garde art, literature and politics. Also, his Dada publication "Salopes" appeared in 1922 and that imagery relates to this print. There was a major retrospective of Joostens work in 1989 at the Provinciaal Museum voor Moderne Kunst in Ostend. This print is from an important Dutch private collection.
