SAMUEL JESSURUN DE MESQUITA
Tusche lithograph, 1919, Van Es L 019, edition 25. 9 1/8 x 7 in. Signed and numbered in pencil. This is a fine impression printed on a sturdy,smooth wove paper. The margins appear to be full. The condition is fine apart from a tiny bend in the lower right corner of the sheet, well away from the image. This is an uncommon approach to the medium by Mesquita and only ten impressions of this print have been located. The artist was constantly experimenting with the various ways to make prints and this work is exemplary in this regard.
