Emil Orlik: The Massage

The Massage
drypoint, c.1920
Plate/Image Size: 20.5 x 26.5 cm - (8 x 10½ inches)
Sheet Size: 29 x 38 cm - (11½ x 15 inches)
signed and numbered 23/100

a perfect impression of this extremely scarce print; though numbered from a supposed edition of 100 it is highly unlikely that this number was printed; it is a genre subject at which Orlik was at his best around the early 1920s
on off-white laid paper with full margins
in perfect condition
