Bestand_007 (6)
“Aronskelken” is a rare lithographic work by Reyer van der Borden, a Dutch painter, and graphics artist. It is an early work from the hand of this artist, who started his career in the roaring twenties when exotic plants where very popular in art designs.  The print is signed by van der Borden in the right lower corner, and on the left side it says, “Aronskelken”.

In the middle of the plate is the name of the printer found.  The name “Borden” is also hidden somewhere in the artwork. “Aronskelken” is a very big work by v.d. Borden, it measures approximate 75 x 59 cm for the frame and 63 x 46 for the lithograph.

The frame that is complimenting this neat artwork is something special too, it is an original art-deco frame by the “Venesta plywood company”. “Venesta” referring to the word veneer. This was an Estonian company with offices all over Europe, known for their practical furniture. This frame had some small missing chips in the veneer on two places, near the top left corner that are “touched up” by me. The wooden matte has some tidelines in it from moisture.

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.
