Nasturium - HENRI VERSTIJNEN
Medium: woodcut printed in colors
Woodcut printed in colors, circa 1930, edition unknown. 10 x 7 1/2 in. Signed in pencil, lower right. This is a fine impression printed on tan wove paper. The margins are wide and probably full. The condition is excellent. Verstijnen produced a series of floral woodcuts around 1930 which are exquisite in design and color. This interest in somewhat exotic subjects can especially be seen in his bird and animal studies for which he is best known. A retrospective of his work was held in 2006 in Assen and also in The Hague. A lavish catalogue was published in conjunction with the event.
