Emil Orlik: Alter bartiger Mann - Bearded old man

Alter bartiger Mann  -  Bearded old man
copper engraving, 1892
Plate/Image Size: 10.8 x 7.8 cm - (4¼ x 3 inches)
Sheet Size: 28 x 21 cm - (11 x 8¼ inches)
signed in pencil, dated and signed in the plate inscribed 'Stichelblatt' (engraving) in pencil

a brilliant impression of one of the earliest known and scarcest of Orlik prints; possibly the only engraving he completed
a wonderful impression, on laid paper; the plate measures 15 x 11 cms, much larger than the image
apart from a few light handling marks in the very wide margins, in excellent condition
