Businessman -  MASEREEL

Woodcut , 1920, Vorms / von der Gabelentz D9, edition of 12 plus a large edition as published in Genius. 8 1/8 x 6 1/2 in. Initialed and dated in the block. Signed in red crayon and dedicated "voor Herman Bieling." This is a very good impression printed on white wove paper. The margins are wide and the condition is excellent. This impression is from the edition published in Genius (Kurt Wolff, Munich, 1920). Herman Bieling (1887-1964) was a prominent Dutch expressionist painter and printmaker.

Ecce Homo -  MASEREEL

Ecce Homo
Woodcut, 1927, Vorms / von der Gabelentz 49, edition 22. 15 3/4 x 11 5/8 in. Initialed and dated in the block. Signed, dated, titled and numbered in pencil. This is a superb impression of this rare early work, printed on cream wove paper. The margins are full. The condition is excellent apart from minor handling marks in the outer margins only. (The printed surface is pristine.) Masereel was one of the preeminent Belgian expressionist printmakers. He was prolific and most of his prints were small and published in books. Large, early, pencil signed works such as this are very hard to find today.

Shadows (Des Ombres) -  MASEREEL

Shadows (Des Ombres)
Linoleum cut, 1953, Vorms & von der Gabelentz D155, edition 25. 7 1/16 x 9 7/8 in. Initialed and dated in the plate. Signed, numbered, titled and dated in pencil. This is a fine impression in excellent condition. The margins are full. This work was issued as a separate print and was never found in any book editions like so many of the artist's prints. Masereel is probably the best known Belgian expressionist printmaker and he was quite prolific. The signed prints, however, are increasingly hard to find since they were done in very small editions. This is a very good example of his work from the 1950s.
