Besides this “Gesellschaft für vervielfältigende Kunst Wien” 1933 edition linoleum-block print “Waldinneres” (“in the wood”) just one other graphic example by this printmaker came to light. It was offered as “Farbradierung” (!) by a well known German auction house in 2016.
The VfVK print is (seems) also found as a signed edition. This is always a “tricky” feature for collectors. In perticular when no written evidence or proof of different and separate editions were delivered.
It is not uncommon to find signed prints of “slightly smaller dimensions” (the lower 1 cm. with the printed GfvK information removed) created without no other reason than to “increase” the market value increasing profit and deceiving the buyer-collector (beware !)
Dear print lover, passing-by visitor and reader:
While this new gallery-museum site is under construction (being build-up, stocked and arranged) priority must be given to first add all the represented artists in the index with works from the collection and if possible with the examples from the archives.
During construction the site is open to visitors, questions, feedback and suggestions.
Read more about the artists, their lives, families and careers in the new and extensive Artist Lexicon: “DAS HAUS DER FRAU, the short biographies” accompanying this exhibition.
Hundreds of new artist biographies, a private publication in 2 Volumes written conveniently in English.
