Emil Orlik: Figur unter Weidenbaum

Figur unter Weidenbaum
colour woodcut and counterproof in black, 1902
Plate/Image Size: 14.3 x 13.2 cm - (5¾ x 5¼ inches)
both unsigned

an unlettered proof on cream wove for the woodcut which appeared in the extremely scarce catalogue of the XIVth Exhibition of the Vienna Secession : Klinger-Beethoven, together with a counterproof of the image in black on white tissue thin wove; the counterproof is almost certainly a unique print as the technique by which counterproofs are made does not allow for multiples
both prints in good condition.
The sheet sizes are proof : 28.8 x 21.6 cms and counterproof 17.5 x 16.8 cms

obviously rare items
