Halvemaansteeg (Amsterdam) -  WITSEN

Halvemaansteeg (Amsterdam)
Dutch, (1860-1923)
Etching and aquatint, 1907-09, De Groot 127, van Wisselingh 453; edition probably 100. 15 1/2 x 11 1/2 in. Signed in pencil, lower right. This is a fine, atmospheric impression. The margins are somewhat narrow and there's a small, skillfully repaired tear in the upper right corner margin not affecting the image. Witsen specialized in these compelling, beautifully rendered views of Amsterdam and other Dutch cities. His work was popular at the time and his publisher was E.J. van Wisselingh & Co., Amsterdam. Witsen was also a gifted painter and photographer.

Damrak I -  WITSEN

Damrak I
Dutch, (1860-1923)
Etching and aquatint, 1905-06, De Groot 118 (vi/VI), Boon 112, van Wisselingh 444; edition about 95 plus 20 artists proofs. 15 3/4 x 19 5/8 in. Signed in pencil, lower right, and numbered in pencil, lower left. Here we have a rich, moody, atmospheric impression which is so typical of Witsen's work. (His paintings, too, tend to be somewhat somber.) The paper is a heavy laid without a watermark. The margins are full and the condition is fine. Witsen did four views of Damrak during this 1905-06 period. Today the Damrak is a partially filled in canal between Centraal Station and Dam Square.


Dutch, (1886-1963)
Woodcut, undated (circa 1925-, edition unknown. 15 1/2 x 11 1/4 in. Signed in pencil. A fine impression with full margins. Some thin spots showing on the verso along the sheet edges. Wittenberg produced woodcuts as well as wood engravings. He depicted animal subjects in a creative and often decorative manner reflecting to some extent the work of Samuel Jessurun de Mesquita.

Calf (Kalfje) -  WITTENBERG

Calf (Kalfje)
Dutch, (1886-1963)
Lithograph, circa 1920-30, small edition. 7 1/8 x 8 5/8 in. Signed and titled in pencil. Also, inscribed in pencil, "eigendruk" (hand-printed.) This is a fine delicate impression printed on thin China paper. The margins are probably full and the condition is quite good. Wittenberg was a gifted draughsman and excelled in woodcut, lithography and painting. He lived and worked primarily in the Hague and Dordrecht. His work is found in many museums including the Rijksmuseum, the Museum Boijmans van Beuningen and the Gemeentemuseum.

Geitje (Kid) -  WITTENBERG

Geitje (Kid)
Dutch, (1886-1963)
Lithograph, 1949, edition unknown. 11 1/2 x 15 1/8 in. Signed and dated on the stone. Signed and titled in pencil. This is a superb impression of the large work. The margins are full. The condition is very good other than for slight wrinkling in the outer margins here and there. Exquisitely rendered, this lovely print reflects Wittenberg's great skills as a draughtsman. Birds and animals were typical subjects and he was equally well-versed in the woodcut medium.

By the Seashore -  WOLVENS

By the Seashore
Belgian, (1896-1977)
Etching, circa 1930, edition unknown. 4 x 5 7/8 in. Signed in pencil, lower right. This is a fine impression in fine condition. The margins are full. Wolvens was a gifted painter and printmaker who loved to depict beach scenes near Oostende. He was born in Brussels but settled permanently in Bruges in 1930. He was influenced by James Ensor in both style and subject. Other etchings by Wolvens are currently available.

Staalstraat, Amsterdam -  WOUTERS

Staalstraat, Amsterdam
Dutch, (1887-1957)
Woodcut printed in colors, 1932, edition unknown. 15 1/4 x 19 1/4 in. Signed lower right with a printed signature, "Wilm Wouters del. et sc." This is a fine impression in very good condition. (There's a soft crease in the lower margin.) This is a published state of a print probably produced as a series of charming views of the city of Amsterdam. (Vereeniging van Beeldende Kunsten 1932)
