"Des Künstlers Schwester Gerta" ("The Artist's Sister Gerta") - 1911
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 and dated in the plate with "Egon Schiele 1911".
The print, which demonstrate Schiele's distinctive style, is very well preserved after all these years.
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 hard to find as the majority are in institutions or 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 and insurance. Will be very carefuly and securely packed (see reviews).
Phototype technique is the highest quality printing process ever, with only three phototype printshops left in the world today. This technique was mainly used for illustrating books / prints in small editions. It makes possible to achieve prints of incredibly high original fidelity.
The result of the phototype is a grid-less print that shows surfaces supporting the brightest lights as well as fine drawing.
