Crowd in Motion # 1 (Massagang #1) - NICOLAS (NICO) EEKMAN
NICOLAS (NICO) EEKMAN
Woodcut, 1923, small edition, perhaps 50. 11 1/2 x 12 in. Signed in pencil, lower right, and signed in the lower left with the artist's red ink monogram. This is a superb, dark impression of this large work. Printed on thin Japanese paper, the margins are full. The condition is fine apart from minor toning along the extreme top edge of the margin and a tiny break in the lower right margin corner. This is one of two related prints by this title. Eekman liked the idea of the processional as a design concept as shown in his seven image work called "Danse Macabre" from 1924. This print may relate to the Flight into Egypt theme.
