Geometric Abstraction - JOZEF PEETERS - linocut on blue paper

Belgian, (1895-1960)

Linocut on blue paper, 1921, edition unknown but certainly small. 7 7/8 x 6 3/4 in. Unsigned. This is a fine proof impression before the monogram in the lower left corner. The paper is a blue wove and the margins are irregular. The condition is very good. This compelling image was published in the set "Map met 6 Linos" (1921) by De Sikkel. Complete sets are exceedingly rare today and these proofs are before publication. This work epitomizes the Belgian avante-garde printmaking aesthetic of the 1920s which relies on bold geometric images often interspersed with typography and strong color combinations. Peeters, along with Edmond van Dooren, Floris Jespers, Victor Severanckx and others, defined a national movement which is also evidenced in their paintings and occasional sculpture. Provenance: Flor Bex, former Director of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Antwerp and a celebrated author on this subject.      $2,000
