The Lovers (De Verloofden) -  HERCKENRATH

The Lovers (De Verloofden)
Linoleum cut, 1942, subsequent to the Horemans catalogue, edition probably 25. 12 7/8 x 10 in. Initialed in the block. Signed, dated and titled in pencil. This is a fine impression printed on light cream laid paper. The condition is quite good other than a faint bit of toning within a previous mat opening. The margins are full. Herckenrath studied at the Academy in Antwerp and was influenced by the prints of Henri van Straten. This is an outstanding example of his work.

The Poachers (Stroopers) -  HERCKENRATH

The Poachers (Stroopers)
Linoleum cut, 1934, Horemans pg. 90, edition 25. 14 7/8 x 11 in. Initialed in the block and signed and titled in pencil. This is a superb impression printed on off-white laid paper. The margins are full and the condition is excellent. This large work is an outstanding example of Belgian expressionist printmaking between the wars. Along with van Straten, Masereel, the brothers Cantre and others, Herckenrath created a compelling body of graphic images often depicting potent themes and the emotional angst of the day. Block prints became the medium of choice for the message. The editions tend to be small and this important material is proving to be difficult to find today.
