Landscape with Farmhouses - JAN ALTINK
Woodcut, 1926, edition unknown. 9 3/8 x 14 3/4 in. Signed and dated in ink, lower right. Here we have a fine, rich impression printed on a sturdy cream wove paper. The margins are full and the condition is good. (There's a repaired break just outside the image in the upper left corner. There are traces of old cellotape adhesive in the margins, one of which extends on the bottom to just outside the image.) This potent and very rare woodcut exemplfies Altink at his best in this medium. He also worked in etching and lithography and excelled as a painter. He was born in Groningen and studied at the Minerva Academy. He one of the founders of "de Ploeg" and remained a member of the group into the 1960s.
