R. Piper & Company, Munich, strictly limited to 150 examples, 50 on Japan paper, 100 on velin 1922 - OFFERING: An outstanding drypoint intaglio print by Beckmann, done during one of his most fertile periods of printmaking, the third state of three, (the only state approved for sale by the artist), signed in pencil in Beckmann's characteristic, angular post-1915 German script, left unnumbered as issued, an excellent impression on handmade wove paper (velin) with full margins, the burr strong and velvety. SIZE: Print: 290 x 434 mm / Passe de Partout: 483 X 620 mm. FORMAT: loose, sleeved for protection in a passe de partout. CONDITION: Fine within plate, parts of plate margins with customary yellow toning, sheet margins fine, signature bright. / Rear: penciled one-line note and title, customary offset yellowing corresponds to plate margins on print side. RARITY: Very Scarce. Print examples appear in the marketplace about three-four times a decade, a majority in Germany. PRINT STATES: Beckmann generally disdained preliminary drawings. One proof is known to exist for the first state in which Beckmann established the composition. Two proofs are known to exist for the second state when many small additions were made. In the third and final state, further details were added. One trial proof is known to exist. 150 examples were signed by the artist and left unnumbered. Subsequently, Frank numbered 40/100 on velin and 10/50 on Japan paper. REFERENCE: Hofmaier 235.
