Self Portrait at a Table (Selbstbildnis am Tisch) - KATHE KOLLWITZ
Medium: etching, drypoint and aquatint
Etching, drypoint and aquatint, 1893 (?), Von dem Knesebeck 21 IIIc (of VIb), Klipstein 14 IIIa (of Vb); edition unknown. 7 1/16 x 5 in. Signed in pencil, lower right. Signed in pencil by the printer, O. Felsing, Berlin grd. in the lower left. This is a superb, early impression printed on a sturdy cream wove paper with full margins. Excellent condition. Before the numbered edition of 50 impressions published by Emil Richter in Dresden in 1918 and before the printed text in the lower margin published in 1921. This exceptional early etching certainly reminds us of Rembrandt's work, notably "Self Portrait Drawing at a Window," from 1648.
