Alpine Mountain Scene - HANS NEUMANN
Medium: woodcut printed in colors
Woodcut printed in colors, circa 1910-20, edition unknown. 9 1/4 x 12 1/8 in. Signed in pencil and also inscribed "Munchen" and "aquarellhanddruck." This is a fine impression printed on fibrous Japanese paper. The margins are substantial and the condition is very good. Neumann was a gifted artist and excelled at these subtle, poetic and well-crafted woodcut images. There is no proper catalogue raisonne of Neumann's prints and, in fact, there is surprisingly little in published material to help us document his work. His prints do turn up in America which suggests he may have had a dealer here at some point, probably when he was active in the early years of the 20th century. Furthermore, his editions were certainly not large given the overall scarcity of his prints.
