An enchanting, nearly bewitching, German Art Nouveau "Jugendstil" woodcut by J.J. Vrieslander, called "Der Kamm", and showing a lovely young woman with gorgeous eyes, combing her extraordinary hair.

Circa 1900.

This is a time in German Art Nouveau when artists were looking for "special effects" including a sophisticated flattening out of nature, which remains unique to the era.

in this piece, everything is black and white, except the eyes that are blue, and the skin that has very light pink coloring.

This totally unexpected detail in a woodcut, give a rare intensity to the gaze and to the portrait.

This was genuine Avant Garde and John Jack Vrieslander's prints (1879-1957) were definitely at the forefront of it.

An exquisite piece which transports you to one of the most creative times in Art history!

Signed with the monogram "v" in the upper right corner, Vrieslander's very stylish signature.

This was a "compte d'auteur" print (financed by the author), meaning a VERY confidential production. I would say less than 50 were printed.

Please check out my other pieces by this artist, all are stunning.

They also come from a private collection, now mostly scattered, and chances to find them again are probably close to nil.

CONDITION: In very good condition with no damage. Just the usual light darkening of the paper.

MEASUREMENTS: Length: 9 1/2". Width: 6 3/4".

Will be shipped "Registered": Airmail from Paris including insurance, online tracking (Europe US Canada) and signature at delivery.
