Large Bird Eating a Lizard - ROELF GERBRANDS
Medium: etching and aquatint printed a la poupee
Etching and aquatint printed a la poupee, 1926, edition unknown. 25 3/4 x 18 5/8 in. Signed and dated in ink, lower right. (Once in the image and once below the image.) This is a superb, beautifully inked impression of this monumental print. The margins are substantial. The condition is very good other than faint toning on the verso in a few areas. This majestic work is typical of Gerbrandt's interest in wildlife in a natural setting. His technical skills are remarkable; he can work delicately and also with a dramatic, deeply etched line that flourishes on a large scale. The artist lived and worked in Amsterdam and later moved to Haarlem. He studied with Jan Visser and F.W. Nieuwenhuis. Grebrants was also a painter and a draughtsman extraordinaire.
