Etching, drypoint and aquatint, 1885, Delteil / Cailac 62 (iv/IV), edition 50. 4 3/4 x 6 1/4 in. Not signed in the image. This is a fine impression from the only posthumous edition of 50 printed in 1920. (There were only 12 lifetime impressions.) The margins are full and the condition is excellent. The print bears the posthumous stamp (Lugt 613) and is numbered. Given the rarity of so many of Pissarro's lifetime editions, later printings are a welcome opportunity for collectors who enjoy his work.

Landscape 2015-II -  POSTMA

Landscape 2015-II
GRIETJE POSTMA
Dutch, (b. 1961)
Woodcut printed in colors, 2015, edition 26. 14 5/8 x 23 in. Signed, dated, titled and numbered in pencil. This is a superb impression in fine condition. The margins are full. 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.
