The Shell Fisherman (De Schelpenvisser) - JAN TOOROP - drypoint

Dutch, (1858-1928)

Drypoint, 1902, Verbeen/Rijksmuseum 64, edition unknown. 7 3/8 x 6 1/8 in. Signed in the plate. Signed in ink, lower left. This is a fine, rich impression printed with plate tone. The margins are probably full and the condition is very good. (There's very slight bit of light toning within a previous mat opening and very slight thinning along the outer edges of the sheet from an early mount.) Done in Katwijk aan Zee, during the artist's second stay there, this print is illustrated and discussed at length in Holland on Paper in the Age of Art Nouveau (2014) by Cliff Ackley, pages 180-181. The Rijksmuseum catalogue lists only one state which is this, the finished state, but an earlier state is known to exist.       $5,000
