I never came to “win one” one of her prints in an auction, or any other. But the same goes for a handful of other artists  … Norbertine Bresslern, Valerie Praschniker. It took until summer 2022 to be able to actually represent Martha Geibel with these prints in this collection but the waiting was awarded: these 4 early prints were obtained from an estate sale with the help of a friendly seller and are wonderful examples and among the very finest and rarest in this collection.   

I wonder where she could have witnessed this intimate family ritual (first print). We know the name of her father, but not her mother’s or brother’s (who died in 1950). They could also be the children of a close friend. 

The market scenes show the“Weimar - Gemüsemarkt” (vegetable market).

From her series “Belvedere” (16 prints).

“Belvedere in Winter” 

Occasional prints 

Bookplates, wish cards etc.. 


Margarete Geibel was one of the most prolific printmakers. Recently her “Werkverzeichnis” or catalogue Raisonnée was published by Joseph Fach Gallery in Frankfurt and composed by Angelika Mundorf a former museum director.
