Egon Schiele (1890 - 1918) - 2 prints : Arnold Schönberg (1917) and Sonnenblumen (1911)
Helioprint / Phototype original - Plate signed and dated - 1911; 1917; 1940/50

"Sonnenblumen" - 1911 ("Sunflowers") and "Arnold Schönberg" - 1917 (Austrian composer)

After Egon Schiele. Provenance: small edition printed in Vienna by the State Print Office of Austria (Staatsdruckerei Österreich) on high quality paper at the end of the 1940s / beginning of the 1950s.

Both prints, which demonstrate Schiele's distinctive style, are very well preserved after all these years. The grey track under the signature of the "Sunflowers" is of origin (see pictures).
They haven't ever been framed. They have been stored throughout the 70 years since they were printed.
Please see pictures for details about their exact condition.

These prints are very hard to find as the majority are in collections.

International shipping with tracking number and insurance. The print will be perfectly packed (see reviews).

About the phototype technique:
Phototype is the highest quality printing process ever, with only three phototype printshops left in the world today. The colour image is broken down into up to 25 colours and then printed on top of each other in as many print cycles. The printing took place from light to dark – first the lightest colour was printed, then the next darker one. The finished image achieved a colour quality that was almost comparable to that of an oil image.
This technique was mainly used for illustrating books or prints in small editions. It makes possible to achieve prints of incredibly high original fidelity.
