The Shower -  SCHONK

The Shower
Lithograph, circa 1920-30, edition unknown. 18 x 14 1/4 in. A fine impression on cream wove paper. Full margins. Fine condition. Initialed on the stone. Signed and titled in pencil; this impression also inscribed "5". Schonk produced many such vibrant, stylized images of landscapes and birds. He was born in Schiedam and later studied in Groningen with Simon Moulijn.

Waterverversching (Water Refreshment) -  SCHONK

Waterverversching (Water Refreshment)
Etching, undated (probably circa 1920-25), Hijner/ Hilversum catalogue 37, edition unknown. 14 1/2 x 18 1/16 in. Signed in pencil, lower right. Titled in pencil, upper left. Inscribed, eigendruk," lower left (printed by hand). This is a fine impression in good condition. The margins are full. (There are a few spots of foxing(?) here and there in the margins.) Schonk did a series of fish etchings (and woodcuts) in black and white which echo the earlier work of J.G. Veldheer and his color woodcuts. Schonk's stylized work from the art deco era is quite distinctive and certainly worthy of more attention. He was a student of Simon Moulijn in Groningen.
