"Selbstbildnis" - 1910 ("Self-Portrait")
After Egon Schiele. Provenance: small edition printed in Vienna by the State Print Office of Austria (Staatsdruckerei Österreich) on high quality paper at the very beginning of the 1950s.
Signed in the plate with "S 10" (Schiele signature until 1911).
This rare print, which demonstrates Schiele's distinctive style, is very well preserved.
It hasn't ever been framed; it has been stored throughout the 70 years since it was printed.
Please see pictures for details about its exact condition.
From a private collection, Austria.
Very difficult to find as the majority are now in private collections.
Prints from this series have sold for more than 1500€ on Catawiki.
Please note: this is an original heliogravure/phototype from the very beginning of the 1950s, not a later reproduction or giclee print, which are far more common.
International shipping, tracking number, insurance. Will be very carefuly and securely 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 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.
