Original Hanns Anker drypoint.
Very good signed proof impression with fresh burr to the drypoint line, printed with considerable plate tone. Inscribed by the artist “Probedruck” (trial proof) and with the dragonfly blindstamp.
This is one of a small group of nude studies which Hanns Anker made as original drypoints. Much of this artist’s work was in designing book illustrations and he became involved with lithography when producing propaganda posters for Germany during the First World War.
On heavy cream wove paper with full margins and deckle edge. Some handling creases in outer margins, otherwise very good original condition.
