Rouen Cathedral (Kathedraal Rouaan) - WOJ NIEUWENKAMP
Etching, 1910-1911, Nieuwenkamp E119 (iv/IV); one of four proofs in this state. 16 15/16 x 14 1/8 in. Signed and dated in pencil. Also inscribed "4 staat. 4 proefdrukken. 25 Aug 1911." This is a fine, richly inked impression printed on cream wove paper. The margins have been trimmed to about 1/2" on all sides, but otherwise, the condition is excellent. This exceptional work is a tour de force of etching and shows that the artist could work effectively on a large scale and with great detail. The total edition is unknown but we believe it to be rather small, perhaps fewer than 20 impressions. In fact, most of Nieuwenkamp's etchings were printed in modest quantities with various proofs along the way in different states.
