Geometric Abstraction -  PEETERS

Geometric Abstraction
JOZEF PEETERS
Belgian, (1895-1960)
Linocut on blue paper, 1921, edition unknown but certainly small. 7 7/8 x 6 3/4 in. Unsigned. This is a fine proof impression before the monogram in the lower left corner. The paper is a blue wove and the margins are irregular. The condition is very good. This compelling image was published in the set "Map met 6 Linos" (1921) by De Sikkel. Complete sets are exceedingly rare today and these proofs are before publication. This work epitomizes the Belgian avante-garde printmaking aesthetic of the 1920s which relies on bold geometric images often interspersed with typography and strong color combinations. Peeters, along with Edmond van Dooren, Floris Jespers, Victor Severanckx and others, defined a national movement which is also evidenced in their paintings and occasional sculpture. Provenance: Flor Bex, former Director of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Antwerp and a celebrated author on this subject.

Builders at a Railway Viaduct, Amsterdam

Dutch, (1886-1958)
Etching and aquatint, undated, edition 20. 25 1/2 x 19 1/2 in. Signed and numbered in pencil. Signed in the plate. This is a fine, atmospheric impression of this large print. The margins are full. The condition is quite good apart from minor rippling in the image. Poortenaar did other etchings of this subject which shows builders working on deep foundation pilings ("heien" in Dutch). Poortenaar was a prolific etcher and produced many Dutch landscapes, London views as well as Indonesian subjects. He lived in London from 1914-1922 and embarked for Indonesia in 1922. He was closely associated with Willem Witsen, the prominent Dutch painter and etcher.

Landscape 2003-I -  POSTMA

Landscape 2003-I
GRIETJE POSTMA
Dutch, (b. 1961)
Woodcut printed in colors, 2003, edition 40 plus 10 artist's proofs. 15 1/8 x 22 1/2 in. Signed, dated, titled and numbered in pencil. This is a fine impression of this uncommon work. The margins are full and the condition is excellent. As with all of Postma's work, this exemplary woodcut is printed from a single block. This is not a multiple block woodcut in the Japanese tradition, but rather, a reduction woodcut printed from a single piece of wood. The artist makes an initial design on the block and then prints the entire edition. She returns to the block and makes more design changes and then re-inks the block and prints on top of the same sheets of paper. This process continues and the end result is a build up of layers of ink resulting in a subtle yet rich overlay of colors. There is very little margin for error in this time consuming yet rewarding process. Grietje Postma is one of the finest woodcut artists working in Holland today.
