A landscape with pollard willows
This 85 year old woodblock print by Ed Jeska was made around 1930. It is titled “Knotwilgen” or “Pollard Willows”. This artwork still has its beautifull original black, wooden art deco frame. The woodblock print measures 28 x 21 cms. The big frame measures 38 x 34.5 cms.
The artwork is printed on Japanese paper, (Gampi I think). This thin paper was introduced in Europe when Japanese woodblockprints became very populair. It provides the image with a very crisp sharp lines. I know Ed Jeska was very fond of the Japenese printing techniques because he made many artworks in this manner. The print is signed by Jeska on the bottom right and titled in the left corner. It has been cleaned and was re-framed on acid free museum board. The condition of this work is now very good. Fresh for years to come!
