Dance of Death in Seven Tempos (Dood- Dans in Zeven Tempos) -  EEKMAN

Dance of Death in Seven Tempos (Dood- Dans in Zeven Tempos)
NICOLAS (NICO) EEKMAN
Belgian, (1889-1973)
Woodcuts, 1924, edition 200. each woodcut 10 3/4 x 6. Signed in red ink with the artist's monogram on the left and signed in pencil, lower right. This set of seven woodcuts (plus title page) consists of fine, uniform impressions in very good condition. The margins are full as issued. This masterful Belgian expressionist work is printed on one sheet of Toshi paper and presented in an accordian fold, with the original presentation wrapper. Eekman was born in Brussels and settled in Paris in 1920. He exhibited widely in Europe and was quite friendly with Mondrian and Signac. He was very active as a painter and woodblock artist and also showed his prints in Pittsburgh, Los Angeles, Toronto and Chicago. (There's a wonderful web site which has been organized by the artist's daughter, Luce: nicolaseekman.com.) As seen in the work of Henri van Straten, Victor Delhez and Nicolas Eekman, among others, a macabre and thoroughly captivating sense of humor often pervades Belgian aesthetics during the 1920s and 1930s. James Ensor is best known and certainly an early inspiration, but there were many other printmakers whose work stands out. This is particulary evident in the woodcut medium and Eekman's version of "danse macabre" is exemplary.

Hop-Frog's Revenge (La Vengeance de Hop-Frog) -  ENSOR

Hop-Frog's Revenge (La Vengeance de Hop-Frog)
JAMES ENSOR
Belgian, (1860-1949)
Etching, 1898, Taevernier 112 (ii/II), edition unknown. 14 x 9 3/4 in. Signed and dated in the plate. Signed and dated in pencil, lower right. Titled in pencil, lower left, and with an extensive pencil dedication below at left. This is a superb impression printed on cream-colored Japanese paper. The margins are wide and possibly full. The condition is fine apart from a couple of minor spots in the upper left corner margin well away from the image. This large and important work relates to a short story by Edgar Allan Poe in which the dwarf, Hop-Frog, is the king's jester and takes his revenge on the king and his ministers for a wrong done to his friend, Tripetta. The print is dedicated in pencil, "Pour Madame Steyns, pour ses yeux d'agrément, ses pommettes roses et d'api, et son esprit charmant et de Gand, J. Ensor." (For Miss Steyns, for her pleasant eyes, her pink cheekbones and flush/crisp, and her charming spirit and of Ghent.) "d'api" refers to "pomme d'api" and it's a play on the word "pommettes". It's a reference to a kind of apple that's crisp and flush. As for the rhyme of "charmant" and "Gand," it's probably meant to be cute, as in: she's got charming spirit and she is also from Ghent. The idea here is this is meant to a clever, flirtatious rhyme; not 100% coherent. This dedication is to Elsa Steyns but we have not yet turned up any information about her.

This is a fine impression printed with light plate tone on a cream simili Japon paper. The condition is fine apart from three minor scuff marks in the margins, well away from the image. The margins are probably full measuring about 3 inches on all sides. This engaging little print reminds us of Rembrandt's many studies of beggars.

His earliest works were mezzotints after old masters. His mature work consisted primarily of views of Amsterdam, flower studies, birds and other animals. His last important exhibition was at the Museum Kempenland in Eindhoven in 1988. Everbag's prints are consistently good and they are especially sought after by collectors in his native Holland. This impression is dedicated in pencil to the artist, Cees Bolding (1897-1979).
