JOZEF ISRAELS – A young sempstress, 1898
Sheet size: 300x220 mm
Image size: 195x140 mm
Edition: Size of edition unknown – Unsigned
Original etching by Philip Zilcken (Dutch, 1857-1930) after a painting by Jozef IsraŽls. Printed chine collť, on thin china paper fixed onto a stout wove backing sheet, by Amst. Boek- en Steendrukkerij. This is one of 24 etchings by Zilcken (a significant artist in his own right) after the masters of the Hague School, tipped into copies of Dutch Painters of the Nineteenth Century by Max Rooses. There are no typeset credits below the etching, so that the fact that this is an etching by Zilcken after IsraŽls, rather than an original etching by IsraŽls, is not apparent from the etching itself. Condition: Fine.
