FRANS PIETER TER MEULEN – A winter's evening, 1900
Sheet size: 300x220 mm
Image size: 180x130 mm
Edition: Size of edition unknown – Signed in plate
Original etching by Philip Zilcken (Dutch, 1857-1930) after a painting by Frans Pieter Ter Meulen. With the signature of Ter Meulen etched in the plate. Printed chine collé, 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 Ter Meulen, rather than an original etching by Ter Meulen, is not apparent from the etching itself. Condition: Fine.
