Silver Heron with Lotus (Zilverreiger met Lotus) - HENRI VERSTIJNEN - woodcut printed in colors

Dutch, (1882-1940)

Woodcut printed in colors, circa 1931, edition unknown. 19 3/4 x 14 1/4 in. Signed and titled in pencil. This is a superb impression printed on Japanese paper. The margins are full and the condition is very good. (There are traces of old hinges at the four margin corners.) Verstijnen started out as a glass and ceramic designer in Gouda and then Maastricht. He later established himself in the Hague (1918) at the Pulchri Studio and with "Haagse Kunstkring" and specialized in printmaking and paintings of floral and animal subjects. An important retrospective exhibition was held in 2006-07 at the Drents Museum and also at the Museum Mestag, both in Holland. His large woodcuts are exceptional and also quite rare. The Silver Heron was printed from four blocks and is so inscribed.       SOLD
