Feeënsprookje (Fairy Tale) -  TOOROP

Feeënsprookje (Fairy Tale)
Woodcut printed in color, 1895, Verbeek (Rijksmuseum) 9, edition unknown. 4 1/4 x 2 5/8 in. Signed, dated (twice) and inscribed in ink. This is a superb impression of this extremely rare work which is here printed on Japanese paper. The margins are wide and probably full. The condition is quite good apart from very slight darkening of the sheet from light exposure. This impression is dedicated, "aan Hermine la Fontaine, liefs van, ('love from') Jan Toorop, 1926" (He also wrote in ink, "1896 fec." referring to the date when the impression was printed.) Hermine la Fontaine was a close friend of the artist. The catalogue suggests the influence of Lucien Pissarro and states there are impressions known in brown-black, green, green-brown and brown.

Strandvonders (Beachgoers collecting objects) -  TOOROP

Strandvonders (Beachgoers collecting objects)
Woodcut, 1903, Verbeek/Rijksmuseum 70, edition 25. 4 x 4 7/8 in. Initialed and dated in the block, lower right. This is a fine impression printed on very thin white Japanese paper. The margins are full and the condition is fine. (There's only a very faint suggestion of darkening within the original mat opening.) This endearing print is from a series of five 1903 woodcuts by Toorop which are extremely rare in early impressions. This is from the 1928 edition of twenty-five impressions printed by Ninaber van Eyben on this thin Japanese paper. The print is numbered on the original mat which we have in our possession. This woodcut relates to his drypoint from 1899 called Sprokkelend Kind (Verbeek/Rijksmuseum 47.) The location is Katwijk aan Zee at the Dutch coast.
