This “Astern” woodblock print was acquired for the collection. It appeared in German eBay only yesterday. To this day I’ve never come across his name as a printmaker. He had an impressively long career as professor in Kassel Kunstgewerbeschule. Knowing he died, aged 64, in 1928 places this large modernist bouquet in a completely different light amidst the many flower bouquets of women artists in my collection.
