Der kranke Hund  -  The sick dog
etching printed in brown, c.1915
Plate/Image Size: 13 x 20 cm - (5 x 7¾ inches)
Sheet Size: 19 x 26 cm - (7½ x 10¼ inches)
signed in pencil and with the red oval 'Orlik' stamp in the lower margin and inscribed "2 Zust."

a very good proof impression of this extremely rare etching; there can have been very few impressions despite this being from a 2nd state; on wove paper
in very good condition apart from a light fold acrosss the top left corner of the large upper margin
Orlik was very fond of his pet dogs and this tender portrait shows this; impressions of the etching were probably given to friends
