Two original heliogravures after Egon Schiele. Provenance: a small edition published in Vienna by the State Print Office of Austria (Staatsdruckerei Östereich) on high-quality paper in the 1940s; from a private family collection in Belgravia, central London.
The prints, which demonstrate Schiele's distinctive style, are very well preserved. They have been stored in an archive and therefore not exposed to light throughout the 70+ years since printing.
Schiele prints from this period are very difficult to find as the majority are now in institutions and private collections. Single prints from the same series have sold at auction for more than €1,500.00 on Catawiki. Please note: these are original heliogravures from the 1940s, not later reproductions.
Taking into consideration their scarcity and value, the prints will be carefully and professionally packaged with protective wooden boards, insured, and shipped with tracking. A signature will be required on delivery.
Egon Schiele has become one of the world's most celebrated artists - and is held in the same high esteem as the likes of Vincent van Gogh and Pablo Picasso - since participating in the Vienna Secession alongside Oskar Kokoschka and Gustav Klimt.
