Christmas Eve -  VAN HOYTEMA

Christmas Eve
THEO VAN HOYTEMA
Dutch, (1863-1917)
Lithograph, 1894, Rijksmuseum/de Groot 48 (i/II), edition unknown in this state; proofs only. 16 1/4 x 9 3/4 in. Initialed and dated on the stone, lower left. This is a fine impression of the rare first state. The margins are full. The condition is very good apart from a couple of small repairs in the lower margin and a few soft handling creases here and there. Owls are Hoytema's favorite subject and this work is the companion piece to his New Year lithograph of the same year. The edition of the print(s) was 200 signed and numbered impressions. This rare first state proof impression is before the edition and the main difference between the two states is the size of the star in the sky at right. Hoytema's interest in owls extended to his childrens book illustrations with the publication of "Uilen Geluk"('Happy Owls'), in 1895.

Five Angora Rabbits -  VAN HOYTEMA

Five Angora Rabbits
THEO VAN HOYTEMA
Dutch, (1863-1917)
Lithograph with embossing printed on chine appliqué, 1898, Rijksmuseum / de Groot 86 (ii/II); edition unknown. 16 1/2 x 13 in. Signed on the stone, lower right. Signed in pencil, lower right. This is a superb impression with wide margins. The condition is unusually fine with only traces of paper hinges showing in four places in the margins and the embossed surface is exceptionally well preserved. This is the second state without the number 2 in the lower right corner, which previously appeared in the Animal Studies (Dierstudies) portfolio edition. For this remarkable print, the lithographic stone was actually incised by Hoytema to create a three-dimensional effect throughout the rabbits' fur. This print is a landmark image for Dutch graphic art during the 1890s and the influence of Japanese prints is readily apparent. This work is illustrated and discussed at length in Van Gogh to Mondrian, Dutch Works on Paper (2000), an exhibition organized jointly by the Boston Museum of Fine Arts and the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. In addition, the print is illustrated and discussed on pages 92-93 of Holland on Paper in the Age of Art Nouveau by Cliff Ackley (2014). Pencil signed impressions of this print are exceedingly rare.

Bosidyelle (Woodland Idyll)
THEO VAN HOYTEMA
Dutch, (1863-1917)
Lithograph printed on chine appliqué, 1898, Rijksmuseum / de Groot 80 (ii/II), edition inscribed as 60. 12 1/8 x 8 1/4 in. Signed on the stone, lower left. Signed and numbered in pencil. This is a superb impression in very condition. The margins are narrow as the sheet has been trimmed to just around the edge of the chine appliqué. The print is also numbered which is highly unusual. This subtle, beautifully drawn lithograph is a fine example of Dutch art nouveau (nieuwe kunst) printmaking. The work is illustrated and discussed on pages 118-119 of Holland on Paper in the Age of Art Nouveau (2014) by Cliff Ackley. This image was printed is variant ink colors but is rarely signed (and especially numbered) as we have it here. The total edition is almost certainly more than sixty and this could well be an early edition.
