WILLIAM STRANG, Dumbarton 1859 – 1921 Bournemouth. A burning Question (Votes for Women). Original drypoint, 1908. This print is for sale, priced £450

WILLIAM STRANG R.A., R.E.
Dumbarton 1859 – 1921 Bournemouth

Strang came to London in 1876 to study at the Slade, where he was taught by Alphonse Legros. He was Legros’ s most important etching student. They shared an interest in the downtrodden, tramps, vagabonds, mortality and the macabre, though Legros also interested himself in the issues of the day, as in this drypoint A burning Question.

Strang stayed on at the Slade an extra year after his course finished in 1880, as assistant to Legros in the Etching Class.

Both of Strang’s sons would follow their father as etchers and David (born 1887) also became the leading printer of artists’ etchings. He printed for his father, as well as compiling the final catalogue of his father’s prints.

£450

A placard with VOTES FOR WOMEN is just visible at the right of the composition.

The Women’s Freedom League was founded in 1908. A militant organisation, it campaigned for women’s suffrage and sexual equality. On the 28 October 1908 three members of the League unfurled a banner from the Ladies’ Gallery in the House of Commons, two of whom, Muriel Matters and Helen Fox, went on to chain themselves to the grille covering the Ladies’ Gallery window. The authorities had to remove the grille with the women still attached and the locks were filed off in a committee room.

It was only after the First World War, and then only to women over the age of thirty, that female suffrage was enacted.

MAX BECHMANN, Leipzig 1884 – 1950 New York. Mink von Vorn mit grosser Frisur. Original drypoint, 1913. This print is for sale, priced £1200

MAX BECHMANN
Leipzig 1884 – 1950 New York

After graduating from the Weimar Academy in 1903, Beckmann spent a few months in Paris and then settled in Berlin.

He exhibited at the Berlin Secession and established an early reputation through his paintings in a late Impressionist style. Bechman’s earliest printmaking was in lithography, somewhat in the manner of Corinth, but in 1912 he took up drypoint, which ushered in his ‘expressionist’ style.

Mink, front face, her hair pile high anticipates his intense Post-War portraits.

Original drypoint, 1913.

A portrait of Beckmann’s first wife, Minna Tube, whom he called ‘Mink’. They married in 1906, having met as art students in Weimar in 1902.

On marriage she abandoned art but later pursued a career in singing, and became particularly known for her Wagnerian roles. She appears in thirteen of Beckman’s prints, and in about twenty paintings. They would divorce in 1925.
