Charley Voor Het Raam (Charley before the Window) - JAN TOOROP
Drypoint, 1898, Verbeek/Rijksmuseum 35 (iii/III), edition unknown. 4 5/8 x 5 3/8 in. Signed and dated (1902) in the plate. Signed in ink, lower right. This is a fine impression with traces of burr showing in her hair, in the upper right corner along the window frame and also below at right in the folds of her dress. The paper is a sturdy, cream Japanese with full margins. The condition is very good apart from some rubbing on the right margin and slight light toning within an earlier mat opening. This charming print shows the artist's daughter, Charley, with a view of the harbor at Katwijk aan Zee. This major work is illustrated and discussed on pages 188-189 of Holland on Paper in the Age of Art Nouveau (2014) by Cliff Ackley.
