Jacobus G. VELDHEER
Date
1915
Description

Signed in pencil. This is a very good impression of this rare print. This is a thin Japanese paper and the margins are full. The condition is very good other than for minor marginal discoloration and traces of the blue ink in the margins. This work exists in color variations. Veldheer was profoundly influence by Japanese prints and he created a small group of fish woodcuts around 1915. The influence of Hiroshige (1797-1858) is clearly evident. Veldheer's color woodcuts are now very rare and were certainly printed in small editions.
