HENRI EVENEPOEL

Lithograph printed in colors, 1897, edition unknown. 13 x 9 1/8 in. Signed on the stone in the upper left corner. This is a very fine impression with fresh colors. The margins are full.

White Chrysanthemum in a Bluegreen Vase (Witte Chrysanten in Blauwgroene Vaasje...) -  EVERBAG

White Chrysanthemum in a Bluegreen Vase (Witte Chrysanten in Blauwgroene Vaasje...)
FRANS EVERBAG
Dutch, (1877-1947)
Etching and aquatint printed in colors, done before 1923, Vervoorn 97, edition unknon but perhaps 50. 18 x 16 1/4 in. Signed in pencil, lower right. Inscribed, épreuve d'artiste," lower left. This is a fine, rich impression with full margins. The condition is fine apart from the slightest trace of an old mat line. This large work exemplifies Everbag's great skills as a color intaglio printmaker. He was producing these plates at a time when color prints were the exception in Holland and his color etchings were certainly among the best work done at the time. His earliest works were mezzotints after old masters. His mature work consists primarily of views of Amsterdam, flower studies, birds and other animals. His last important exhibition was at the Museum Kempenland in Eindhoven in 1988. Everbag's prints are consistently good and they are especially sought after by collectors in his native Holland.

The best and most recent source of information on Gearhart prints is, Behold the Day, The Color Block Prints of Frances Gearhart, published by the Pasadena Museum of California Art (2009) edited by Susan Futterman.

Mediterranean Town View -  LOEBER

Mediterranean Town View
LOU LOEBER
Dutch, (1894-1983)
Etching, 1924, edition 10. 7 3/4 x 11 3/4 in. Signed, dated and numbered in pencil. This is a fine impression of this rare print. The margins are substantial and possibly trimmed. The condition is fine. In keeping with her interest in modernist design and geometric patterns, Loeber here depicts a beach town view and does so with great inventiveness and precision. Loeber attended the State Academy of Fine Arts (Rijksakademie) in Amsterdam from 1915-1918 but left early as she considered it too conservative. Her work was inspired by Piet Mondrian, Theo van Doesburg and Bart van der Leck. Essentially, she found her spiritual home with the Dutch De Stijl group. She married the artist Dirk Koning in 1931.

Windblown Trees -  PATTERSON

Windblown Trees
MARGARET PATTERSON
American, (1867-1950)
Woodcut printed in colors, circa 1920, Bakker 56a, edition unknown. 7 x 9 3/4 in. Signed in pencil, lower right, within the image. This is a superb, vibrant impression of this well known image. The print is trimmed along the edge of the image (by the artist) and attached at the top to a black paper support sheet which extends slightly beyond the print (also done by the artist). In addition, the print and black paper are mounted at the top edge to a sturdy, tan matboard-like support. This is the original presentation as prepared by Patterson and we've seen this approach before. The condition is excellent. As viewed on page 20 of the Bakker retrospective catalogue from 1989, there's an oil study for this image as well as a charcoal and white pastel drawing.

Coast Cedars (2) -  PATTERSON

Coast Cedars (2)
MARGARET PATTERSON
American, (1867-1950)
Woodcut printed in colors, undated but probably about 1920., Bakker 58, edition 100. 7 1/8 x 10 1/8 in. Signed, titled and numbered (1/100) in pencil. This exceptional, vibrant impression is printed on the typical study, fibrous wove paper. There's a small spot of blue ink on the right edge of the image, most likely from the printing process. The margins are full apart from three small, similar rectangular cutaway areas on three sides. What sets this print apart is the depiction of snow on the tree limbs and foreground reflecting Patterson's interest in depicting changing seasons. We are not sure why the number (2) is next to the title but it most likely refers to this being the second version of the print, i.e. winter. This exceptional arts and crafts image was probably done on Cape Cod, about the same time she produced such notable works as Summer Clouds, Windblown Trees and The Sands, Chatham.

Anemones -  PATTERSON

Anemones
MARGARET PATTERSON
American, (1867-1950)
Woodcut printed in colors, 1920s, Bakker 99a, intended edition of 100. 9 7/8 x 7 in. Signed, titled and numbered in pencil. This is a fine fresh impression with rich colors. The margin are full and the condition is very good. (There are old hinges at the top corners and a thin layer of light tissue attached across the top edge of the sheet.) As is typical with Patterson's woodcuts, the paper is roughed up from the printing process primarily on the verso and also on the margins, recto, in a few spot. She favored a heavy, fibrous paper which helped her create an almost three dimensional effect with her images.
