Henk van Gemert
Two colorful screen printings “Cacti”
“Cacti” is a rare and colorful early work by Henk van Gemert, a Dutch painter and graphical artist. These two color screen prints where made in a period when exotic cacti where very popular in Dutch households due to the popularity of the Verkade (chocolate) collectors albums. My guess is that these screen prints where made at the beginning of van Gemert’s career when he was working for a printing company. Van Gemert also included a little copyright notice in both prints. The prints are both signed in the print by van Gemert.
The prints measure ca. 21.5 x 29 centimeters and the original frames and glass measure approximately 33 x 43 centimeters.
I removed both works from the acidic backboard they were prepared on, repaired some small holes and retouched the missing areas. The mattes, I used for this, are made of new acid free museum board.
Price: € 55,- for both cactus works by Henk van Gemert. (exclusive of additional shipping costs)
