Mutter mit Kind (Mother and Child) -  LAAGE

Mutter mit Kind (Mother and Child)
WILHELM LAAGE
German, (1868-1930)
Woodcut printed in colors, 1908, Hagenlocher 83 (ii/II), edition unknown. 13 3/4 x 10 1/16 in. Initialed and dated in the block. Signed, dated and dedicated in pencil. This is a superb impression printed on cream VAN GELDER watermarked paper. The margins are full. The condition is fine apart from just a faint suggestion of light toning within an earlier mat opening. Laage was born in Hamburg and began his printmaking career in 1896. He lived in Paris for many months beginning in 1900 and participated in exhibitions in Vienna and Dresden. He became friendly with Kandinsky, Hans Neumann and Karl Hofer as they exhibited together. Gustave Schiefler published the first catalogue of his woodcuts in 1912 and an article was written about Laage by ER Weiss for Ver Sacrum. Laage is best know for his woodcuts and they range from decidedly expressionist in style to a more realistic approach tinged with stoicism, as seen here. This large, impressive woodcut is one of his most captivating works.

Le Bal Bullier -  LABOUREUR

Le Bal Bullier
JEAN-EMILE LABOUREUR
French, (1877-1943)
Woodcut, 1898, Laboureur 579, edition 61. 8 3/4 x 11 3/8 in. Signed in the block, lower left, with his monogram. Signed and numbered in pencil. This is a very fine impression printed on laid paper. The margins are full and the condition is excellent other than for a tiny repaired tear in the lower margin. This stellar woodcut was exhibited at the Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts in the spring of 1898. It's illustrated and discussed on page 139 of The Artistic Revival of the Woodcut in France 1850-1900 (1984) by Jacquelyn Baas and Richard Field. Bal Bullier was a ballroom in Paris created by François Bullier in the mid 19th century and it was open until 1940. (Note: the catalogue states an edition of sixty-one impressions but all the numbering we have seen is from an edition of sixty, as here.)

L'Abside de Notre Dame (The Apse of Notre Dame) -  MERYON

L'Abside de Notre Dame (The Apse of Notre Dame)
CHARLES MERYON
French, (1821-1868)
Etching and drypoint, 1854, Scheiderman 45 (vi/IX), Delteil/Wright 38 (v/VIII); edition unknown. 6 1/2 x 11 3/4 in. Signed in the plate, lower left, below the image. This is a superb, luminous impression printed on a beautiful sheet of thin china paper. The margins are wide and probably this is the full, untrimmed sheet. The condition is fine apart from slight, old toning (and thinning) from earlier hinges at the top corner edges of the sheet. This iconic Meryon print is from the celebrated collections of B.B. MacGeorge (Lugt 394) and J.J. Heywood (Lugt 1276). Their collector marks are not evident on the print itself but the original Knoedler label from the frame indicates this impression is # 38 in the landmark 1917 catalogue and exhibition of Meryon prints from the MacGeorge Collection. As described in the catalogue, MacGeorge owned five impressions of L'Abside de Notre Dame and this one is "(d) Fifth state, chine." This impression is also cited in Delteil/Wright in his entry for the fifth state, "Mr. MacGeorge also had a proof on thin india paper." In addition, there's an old pencil inscription on the bottom of the margin which reads, "from the Heywood collection." (The Knoedler inventory number on the label also appears in pencil on the bottom margin.) This is an exceptional 19th century French etching with impeccable provenance.

L'Ancien Louvre, Paris (The Old Louvre, Paris, after Zeeman)
CHARLES MERYON
French, (1821-1868)
Etching, 1865-66, Schneiderman 96 (v/VI), Delteil-Wright (v/VI); edition unknown. 6 1/2 x 10 1/2 in. Unsigned. This is a fine impression printed on sturdy wove paper. The margins are wide. The condition is very good apart from toning along the top edge, verso, from an early adhesive and minor toning along the extreme bottom edge, verso. According to Delteil/Wright, "Meryon etched this plate from a painting by Zeeman in the Louvre, as a commission from the French Government, shortly before his second and final term in the asylum at Charenton, two years before his death. The etching was done on the back of the cancelled plate of the Petit Pont." This lifetime impression is from the collection of Alfred Morrison (Lugt 151). Morrison (1821-1897) was a prominent collector of his time.

The condition is fine other than for a tiny, imperceptible pinhole/paper imperfection in the smoke between the clock tower and the first turret. This stellar impression is from the collection of Sir Francis Seymour Haden (Lugt 3938) with his pencil initials on front of the sheet, lower right. Delteil-Wright notes that Haden purchased a fifth state impression from Delâtre for the Victoria & Albert Museum in December, 1860.

The margins are full (but narrow on the sides, as printed). The condition is fine. Pennell produced several etchings and a few aquatints along the Thames during this period. Many of them were published as part of the "Easter Set" but Wuerth does not indicate that this print is part of the series. Our impression is selectively inked to show lights along the docks.

This impression is from the earlier printing of twenty-four signed and numbered impressions, six of which were printed on chine appliqué. (There were also seven artist's proofs).

The margins are modest but measuring 1/4 to 5/8 in. and this could well be the original, untrimmed sheet. The condition is good. (The sheet has been professionally backed with thin Japanese paper due to some thinning on the verso.) The recorded edition mentioned in the catalogue is seventy-eight even though this impression is numbered 21 from the edition of 100.

The condition is very good apart from small old hinges at the four corners, verso, and a tiny wrinkle in the lower right corner of the sheet. The catalogue states that only sixty-four impressions are recorded hence this is not a common print. The Vlvata is the longest river within the Czech Republic. In the background at right is Prague Castle. Construction started in 870 and was completed in 1929!
