Heinrich Nauen "Mutter und Kind" original etching
(Mother and Child);
Medium: original etching. Published in 1919 for Genius. Plate size: 9 1/2 x 7 1/2 inches (240 x 190mm). Printed on laid paper. This print is from GENIUS: Zeitschrift fur Werdende und Alte Kunst, a deluxe art revue founded in 1919 in the aftermath of The First World War. Europe was devastated by the War, both physically and psychologically, and Expressionist art was attempting to create a new artistic idiom. A good impression from the first (and rarest) year of Genius. Not signed.
