Composition with Green and Red - WOBBE ALKEMA
Linocut, 1926, Bool / Petersen G34, edition 75. 8 x 5 1/2 in. Signed and dated "26/78" in pencil. This is a fine impression in fine condition. The margins are full. According to the raisonne, there was no edition printed in 1926 and a few proofs were pulled in 1958. This impression is from the 1978 edition of 75. Even these are not common today. Alkema was originally trained as a cabinetmaker and he eventually worked with an architectural firm in Groningen. He joined De Ploeg and produced many remarkable works of geometric abstraction in painting as well as printmaking. His paintings from the 1920s are important today and his prints are equally desirable. Alkema was also associated with the Belgian Constructivists including Jozef Peeters and Paul van Ostaijen.
