Paul Citroen (1896-1983), intense portrait of a lady, hand signed in pencil on the backside; Paul Citroen 1931.
Paul Citroen attended the Bauhaus in Weimar and is one of the best photographers in the Netherlands. His oeuvre includes paintings, photographs, and stamp designs. His most famous work is perhaps 'Metropolis' (1923), a photo montage of a big city. It inspired the German director Fritz Lang when making the film classic Metropolis.
In 1917 he settled in the Netherlands. In 1933, he founded the New Art school in Amsterdam, to an example of Bauhaus, together with Charles Roelofsz, but it closed in 1937 due to lack of finances.
Print was purchased in 2002 at Artax for EUR 900,-
