Lot description
Akt mit Obstschale. 1911.
Woodcut.
Not in Schapire. Gerlinger H 11-1. With printer's note and the number "1/1 gedruckt am 22.8.94 von Gunter Ullrich". Only to date known copy. On fine Japon. 33 x 27.7 cm (12.9 x 10.9 in). Sheet: 62,8 x 47 cm (24,7 x 18,5 in).

• Only to date known proof of the reverse side of a printing block executed on both sides, which is also part of the Hermann Gerlinger Collection (SHG no. 74).
• In their prints, Schmidt-Rottluff and the "Brücke" artists were able to express their new and unconventional concept of art and breathed new life into the then little popular medium.
• In those years the female nude in the studio was one of the main "Brücke" motifs, as they created a novel and groundbreaking interpretation of the female nude as an independent pictoirial element
.
