LUDWIG EMIL GRIMM, Hanau 1790 – 1863 Kassel. Klobes Abend. This original etching, 1850, is for sale, priced £350

LUDWIG EMIL GRIMM
Hanau 1790 – 1863 Kassel

The brother of the folklorists Jakob and Wilhelm Grimm, Ludwig Emil studied at the Academy in Kassel, and took lessons from Philip Otto Runge.
From 1809-1817 he attended the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich, interrupted in 1814 when he fought as an officer against Napoleon, and 1816 which he spent as a study year in Italy, where he learnt to engrave.
In the 1820’s Grimm helped his pupil, von Reutem, to establish an artists’ colony in Willingshausen, the oldest in Germany and still continuing today. He was appointed Professor of the History of Painting at Kassel Academy in 1832.

THEOPHILE ALEXANDRE STEINLEN, Lausanne 1859 – 1923 Paris. La Majorité Opportuniste. This original lithograph, 1894, is for sale, priced £650

THEOPHILE ALEXANDRE STEINLEN
Lausanne 1859 – 1923 Paris

Steinlen trained in Switzerland as a textile designer and moved to Paris in 1878 to work in a textile factory. In the cafés and cabarets he frequented in Montmartre he became friendly with writers and artists with radical leanings to which he was sympathetic and turned instead to illustration and political satire for left-wing newspapers, as well as poster-making.

From December 1893 till July 1894 Steinlen worked for Le Chambard socialiste, (Social Overthrow), a four-page weekly newspaper, from its debut, until there were signs that the government was going to crack down on anarchists and subversives after an Italian anarchist killed the French President on the 24th June 1894. In over thirty lithographs Steinlen attacked the current state of French society, pointed at corruption and showed the struggles of the working class.

Steinlen signed the Chambard cartoons with French puns of his own German-Swiss name, either as ‘Petit Pierre’ (as here in La Majorité Oportuniste) or ‘Jean Caillou’, which literally translate as ‘little stone’ or ‘pebble’; ‘Steinlen’ being the German for ‘little stone’.

The Chambard lithographs were also separately published in a deluxe edition of 100, signed ‘Steinlen’ in red crayon.

OTTO DIX, Utermhaus, Thuringia 1891 – 1969 Hemmenhofen, Constance. Balanceakt (Balancing Act). This original drypoint, 1922 is for sale, priced £4500

OTTO DIX
Utermhaus, Thuringia 1891 – 1969 Hemmenhofen, Constance

In the immediate post-war years, in response to his experience of the First World War, throughout which he had served as a gunner, Dix moved through an Expressionist phase and after meeting George Grosz in 1920 was also temporarily influenced by Dada, before becoming a leading figure in the Neue Sachlichkeit (New Objectivity) movement, attacking the depravities of the Weimar Republic.

The symbolism of life as a circus or cabaret act was prevalent in Germany in the early 1920’s. The same year, 1922, that Dix, in Dresden, issued his ten drypoints in the portfolio entitled Zircus (Circus), Max Beckmann’s cycle of ten drypoints Der Jahrmarkt (New Year’s Day Fair), in which he depicted himself as a circus barker, was published in Munich, and in Berlin, Georg Alexander Mathéy’s Cirque de Paris appeared in Die Schaffenden.

MARC CHAGALL, Vitebsk 1887 – 1985 St Paul-de-Vence. Angel of Paradise. This original five-colour lithograph, 1956, is for sale, priced £350

MARC CHAGALL
Vitebsk 1887 – 1985 St Paul-de-Vence

Chagall took up colour lithography while he was in New York during the Second World War.

He returned to the South of France in 1947, where he established a close relationship with the printers Mourlot and Sorlier. He was especially active in the medium 1956-66, when he produced hundreds of colour lithographs in rich glowing colours in a repertoire that encompassed lovers, flowers, animals, the Bay of Nice and the Bible.

Chagall had already etched a large series of monochrome Old Testament plates for Vollard, which remained unpublished at Vollard’s death in 1939. They were not issued until 1956 by Tériade.

The same year the review Verve published them in facsimile, in a large edition, augmented with additional new original lithographs, both monochrome and colour. The colour lithographs were also issued separately in a small signed edition.
