Naar Jan Mankes (1889 - 1920) - Twee Muisjes
Heliogravure - Plate signed - 1916-1928

Framed heliogravure after etching by Jan Mankes (1889-1920). The etching was made in 1916 with the title: Twee muisjes. This heliogravure of the work was published in 1928 in a series with the help of his wife Anne Zernike-Mankes.

Jan Mankes was a great Dutch master artist. Unfortunately, he only lived to be 31 years old. His entire oeuvre, created between 1907 and 1918, includes about 150 paintings, mostly in small sizes, some 100 drawings and more than 40 sheets of graphics, mainly etchings and woodcuts.

After his death, several exhibitions and books and catalogues were published. There are three luxuriously bound books with his "loose" heliogravures published in small issue. This heliogravure was part of the publication in 1928. This engraving is in good condition and is attached to the top edge on the original page, on which it was offered in 1928.

105 mm x 145 mm.
