Lovely Girl (unnamed)

verlag hermann wiechmannThis is a lovely framed antique blank unsent postcard by the well known publishing company “Verlag Hermann A. Wiechmann” from Munich, Germany. These postcards are true collectors items because of their quality. I have seen the exact same postcard time stamped in the year 1900, so it is safe to assume this one is from around that time. The card has been carefully cleaned, and is now well preserved, ready for the future. It will be shipped in its frame as shown on the picture. The card is mounted on an acid free museum board.

It would be a lovely addition to a nursery! The measurements of the frame are 19.5 cm x 14 cm.

Linoleum cut by Han Krug


This big and colorful linoleum cut of the Dutch artist Han Krug, (1890 – 1977) surely is eye candy for both young and old. It would make a wonderful wall decoration in a nursery! This linoleum cut is dated 1935 when Krug worked on illustrations for children’s books. Han Krug used strong colors for this linoleum cut and the scene is very suitable and appealing to young children. It was signed in the plate where it states “Linoleum cut by Han Krug” (Dutch: Linoleumsnede van Han Krug) in the lower right corner.

The measurements of this panoramic print are 55 x 23 cm for the printed area and approximate 66.5 x 39 for the frame. The margins of the paper are about the same as the frame. Some work was done to preserve this print: I removed it from its acidic cardboard, cleaned it, removed the glue and de-acidified this work and did some tear mending on the edges of the paper. There is some crackling here and there in the paper, but nothing too distracting. The print was mounted on museum acid free board, with an acid free yellow matte and a piece of new glass. The frame looks like red oak to me.

This lovely work by Han Krug is now preserved and fresh looking, good for years to come! Ready to hang on your wall.

A very rare and unique Art Deco woodcut from the hand of German woodcut artist August Becker. The work is printed on Japanese Mulberry paper, signed by Becker in the lower right corner, “Aug Becker”. Gold leaf was used by the artist to fill in the eggs.

There is some yellowing but the overall condition is good. The frame and original card board backing are available if desired, the frame however is damaged. Please see the additional pictures.

Artists: Han Krug

Han Krug 1890 – 1977

Hankrug3kleinHan Krug was a Dutch artist who went to the  Academy of Visual Arts (Academie van beeldende kunsten) in The Hague from 1900 til 1908. After graduating from the academy, he worked as a lithograph artist for the “Mouton”printing company in the Hague and the “van Leer”company  in Amsterdam for some time. Around 1910 he started his own commercial advertisement and decoration studio. He also began drawing and painting landscapes. After 1918 he began creating woodblock cuts at which he became very skilled. He mainly created landscapes but also ex-libris and limited edition prints for unique books. For his woodcuts he received an honorable diploma from the Los Angeles bookplate association.

In 1923 Krug became a member of the Pulchri Studio. He got married and together with his wife he began selling lamps, toys and homemade furniture from their home decoration shop. Because of the crisis the demand for home decoration items decreased dramatically and Krug started painting large coastal sceneries with dunes.

During the second world war Krug went into hiding in Wieringen, to avoid being forced to join the fascist “Nederlandse Kultuurkamer”. All artists had to register themselves with the “Dutch culture bureau”. If you did not join, you had to pay a huge (about $ 30,000) fine to the German occupiers. Of course everything an artist made had to be made in service of the national socialistic agenda. After the war he continued painting large dune landscapes and he also helped establishing “the Haagse Aquarellisten”.
