One of the most prolific of all women printmakers, one of the most loved (she was already in her own time) and today probably the most collected and sought-after of the pioneering printmaking artists. She is the undisputed Queen of Printmaking.
Her prints are highly collectable and fetch highest prices in sales and auctions. Considering my collection criteria (to represent as many women printmakers by the best examples possible within my budget) I am quite content with this representation. And who knows … ?
For this purpose also the Shop & Swap will be stocked
Unlike most other women printmakers she chose the landscape as her favourite subject. The unique flower bouquet was acquired in a sale in Hamburg (the city besides Amsterdam and Venice she also visited and made a print of).
As far as my knowledge reaches, the first of the Haystack prints is a unique example. The signature was cut off for narrow framing but her monogram lower right remained.
