Emil Orlik: Japanisches Mädchen unter Weidenbaum

Japanisches Mädchen unter Weidenbaum
colour woodcut, 1902
Catalogue Reference: Schütte 107
Plate/Image Size: 18.4 x 36 cm - (7¼ x 14¼ inches)
Sheet Size: 19.3 x 38.2 cm - (7½ x 15 inches)
signed and dated in pencil

a wonderful, delicate impression on fine laid japan paper with wirelines
apart from slight toning to the back of the sheet, in remarkable condition

this is probably the rarest of the woodcuts made by Orlik in Japan; the number of impressions made is unknown but was surely very small; other known impressions are dated 1901
