Two woodcuts

Schmidhagen, Reinhard



Various dates


2 woodcuts. Each approximately 46x31 cm (18x12"); both affixed to backing boards: 51x41 cm (20x16"). Includes:

  • Detail from Spirit Protecting the Child. 1941.
  • Goldmund. (Detail from Narziss und Goldmund, the Novel by Herman Hesse). 1938.

Both pieces signed, titled and dated by the artist in pencil in the bottom margin. While his life and promising career were cut short by lung disease, the German painter is still known today for his poignant woodcuts dealing with the horrors of war.

Both pieces affixed to cardboard backings with tape at corners; toning and dampstaining to backings, artist information affixed to versos; edgewear to prints with a few small closed tears, some light spotting, one with dampstaining to top margin; very good.
