Max Beckmann Bildnis Frau H.M. Naila woodcut Max Beckmann Bildnis Frau H.M. Naila signed original woodcut

Medium: original woodcut. Signed in pencil. Catalogue reference: Hofmaier 282 IV BB. Printed in Germany in 1923 for the very rare Kunst der Gegenwart portfolio, published in Munich by Marées-Gesellschaft, R. Piper & Co., with the Marées-Gesellschaft blindstamp in the margin. The printer was Fritz Voigt, of Berlin. This impression is one of 220 printed on cream wove paper from a total edition of 300 (consisting of 220 on wove and 80 on japon paper). The image measures 13 3/4 x 13 inches (350 x 331 mm); the total sheet measures 20 1/2 x 18 1/2 inches (520 x 472 mm) with full original margins and deckle edges.

This is one of several portraits of a mysterious woman called "Naila" that were done by Max Beckmann. It is now known that Naila was Dr. Hildegard Melms, and that Beckmann had an affair with her in 1923, the same year he executed this print. This important German Expressionist woodcut can be found in the permanent collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, the Brooklyn Museum and the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA).
