Tree in the Sun
EMILE CLAUS
Belgian, (1849-1924)
Lithograph, circa 1900, edition 100. 21 x 16 7/8 in. Initialed in the stone, lower left. Signed and numbered in pencil. This is a fine impression of this stellar Belgian luminist print. Printed on a chine appliqué, the margins are probably full. The condition is very good apart from residue of a tape adhesive on the edges and a few skillfully repaired splits on the right side, not into the image. Influenced by Claude Monet, Claus developed a distinctly luminist style and in 1904 he started the artist group "Vie et Lumière." Claus is considered the pioneer of Belgian luminism and this print relates closely to one of his paintings. He was friendly with Auguste Rodin and Émile Zola. He made very few prints.

Dog -  COOK

Dog
HOWARD COOK
American, (1901-1980)
Wood engraving, 1929, Duffy 107, edition 100 (forty printed). 6 1/8 x 3 1/4 in. Signed in pencil and inscribed, "Greetings from Howard Cook - my self portrait." This is a very fine impression printed on thin japan paper and mounted at the top to a heavier support sheet. Fine condition. This was possibly intended as a holiday card and with the addition of "self portrait," I suspect the title of simply "Dog," does not tell the whole story here.

Accordian Player -  EEKMAN

Accordian Player
NICOLAS (NICO) EEKMAN
Belgian, (1889-1973)
Woodcut, undated (1920s-1930s), edition 110. 16 1/4 x 8 in. Signed and numbered in pencil. Signed in ink with the artist's red monogram stamp. This is a fine impression of this large woodcut printed on very thin Japanese paper. The margins are probably full. The condition is very good apart from four small brown paper hinges at the corners and obscure traces of foxing here and there. Eekman was born in Brussels and settled in Paris in 1920. He exhibited widely in Europe and was quite friendly with Mondrian and Signac. He was very active as a painter and woodblock artist and also showed his prints in Pittsburgh, Los Angeles, Toronto and Chicago. (There's a wonderful web site which has been organized by the artist's daughter, Luce: nicolaseekman.com.) As seen in the work of Henri van Straten, Victor Delhez and Nicolas Eekman, among others, a macabre and thoroughly captivating sense of humor often pervades Belgian aesthetics during the 1920s and 1930s. Ensor was an influence on this generation.
