Sunflower (Zonnenbloem) - DIRK VAN GELDER
DIRK VAN GELDER
Lithograph, 1925, Adam/Eliens/van den Noort-van Gelder L29, edition unknown. 30 1/4 x 21 1/2 in. Signed on the stone with the artist's monogram, lower left. This is a fine impression in fine condition. The margins are wide and probably full. This large, rare, early lithograph was published by "de Vereeniging tot Bevordering van het Aesthetisch Element in het Voortgezet Onderwijs, voor schoolversiering" (the Society for Promotion of the Aesthetic Element in Secondary Education). This group was founded in 1908 and included work by M.C. Escher, Jessurun de Mesquita and others. Van Gelder was an artistic prodigy and this remarkable print was done when he was only eighteen years old.
