Beskrivning

An original Christmas card with a two-colour abstract engraving of a female figure. No date, but from the 1930s when they lived in Paris. 8vo (20,5 x 23,5 cm). Folded once. Top edge cut. Inscribed on front cover with pencil ”J.v.K.” [Jan van Krimpen].
JBW was one to hop on and off the train, experimenting with abstract or surreal styles, while not adopting wholeheartedly the doctrine á la Breton. During 1934 and 1935, he produced a large number of prints, nearly all abstract or surreal, in a style that he claimed was a mix of ’the ’ blood’ of realism and the ’brains’ of the abstract rhythm.’ The subject matter – images of women titled Composition or Artist or Model – were sometimes in copper engraving but more often in wood. They were characterised by strong lines, and clear and precise delineation.
