Blauwbrugje (Little Blue Bridge) -  ALTINK

Blauwbrugje (Little Blue Bridge)
Etching and aquatint, probably about 1924-25, very small edition. 11 x 9 7/8 in. Signed in pencil lower right and also inscribed "eigendruk" in the lower left. This is a fine impression of this very rare print. The margins are full and the condition is very good. (There's some subtle skinning and adhesive residue on the front margins from a previous face mat.) Altink was born, raised and studied in Groningen and this is a view of the countryside where he lived. He was a founding member of the Dutch expressionist group called "de Ploeg" which means both "plow" and "team". He was also a gifted painter and this subject appears in more than one of his oils. The Groninger Museum houses a solid collection of his work and of other de Ploeg artists such as Wiegers, Dijkstra, Alkema, Faber, etc. Since 1993, the Museum has published a series of books on de Ploeg artists and the volume devoted to Altink, "Jan Altink - Iconen Van Het Groningerland," was recently published.

We've located two paintings that relate to this scene. We also had an impression printed in blue ink titled, Blauwbrugje, (Little Blue Bridge.) This print is a splendid example of Dutch expressionism.
