Masked Woman with a Cape (Gemaskerde vrouw met cape) - SAMUEL JESSURUN DE MESQUITA
SAMUEL JESSURUN DE MESQUITA
Woodcut, circa 1899, van Es H 009, edition unknown. 11 1/2 x 8 in. Initialed in the block, upper right. Signed in pencil. This is a superb impression of this extremely rare print. Printed on a light gray paper like other early woodcuts by the artist, there are only three other impressions cited in the catalogue. The condition is fine. The margins are trimmed to the image and there's an archival support sheet attached along the edges of the print on the edges, verso, done by a European conservator. This beautifully designed art nouveau image shows the influence of Félix Vallotton.
