This is a very fine impression printed on thin japan paper and mounted at the top to a heavier support sheet. Fine condition.

Windmill in Garnwerd (Molen in Garnwerd) -  DIJKSTRA

Windmill in Garnwerd (Molen in Garnwerd)
JOHAN DIJKSTRA
Dutch, (1896-1978)
Etching and aquatint, undated (1920s-1930s), edition unknown. 15 x 10 3/4 in. Signed in pencil and also inscribed, épreuve d'artiste. This is a superb impression of this rare and exceptional print. The paper is a sturdy white wove and the margins are about 1" on all sides. Fine condition. Dijkstra was a founding member of the Dutch expressionist movement known as "De Ploeg," (The Plow) which was established in Groningen in 1918. Indeed, expressionism was international. Dijkstra, along with Jan Wiegers, Jan Altink and others, were keenly aware of the German contingent of the expressionist movement and Wiegers became very close friends with Kirchner while he was living in Davos, Switzerland. Dutch expressionism is often overlooked but it represents an integral part of early 20th century Dutch artistic heritage. The Groninger Museum today possesses a large collection of prints, drawings and paintings by these artists. De Ploeg prints were printed in small editions due to the rather limited audience at the time.

He achieved great success as a printmaker and exhibited at the Downtown Gallery for many years. He spent time in Europe and was back and forth between New York and his native Hawaii. He was active in the WPA program and ultimately, his best work consists of the wood engravings which tend to be uncommon.
