In the Studio (Im Atelier) -  ORLIK

In the Studio (Im Atelier)
Woodcut printed in colors, 1899, edition 100. 5 1/4 x 6 1/16 in. Signed in pencil. This is a fine, fresh impression printed on thin japan paper. The margins are full. The condition is fine apart from slight light toning showing within an early mat opening. This print is page 26 from the rare portfolio, Kleine Holzschnitte, published by Verlag Neue Kunsthandlung, 1920, Berlin. There were thirty-four prints in total. The prints were mounted at the top corners on a support sheet as we have here. Orlik was born in Prague and later studied at the Munich Academy. He traveled to Japan in 1900 and spent several months studying the traditional art of the Japanese woodcut.

Drypoint, 1911, Galerie Glockner 176, edition 100 printed in 1921. 6 1/2 x 14 3/4 in. Signed and dated in pencil (1911). This is a fine impression on cream wove paper. The margins are probably full and the condition is quite good apart from minor handling creases showing mostly in the bottom margin. Orlik was a versatile printmaker and this classic study demonstrates his skills as a draftsman par excellence.
