Frau am Morgen (Woman in the Morning), Hemd Anziehend (Putting on a Blouse)


Conrad Felixmuller (1897-1977), Frau am Morgen (Woman in the Morning) or Hemd Anziehend (Putting on a Blouse), 1920,  etching and aquatint on a cream wove paper, signed in pencil lower right and numbered lower left (9/50),11 3/4 x 7 3/4, the sheet 19 1/2 x 12 3/4 inches. Reference: Sohn 238, Plate 8 from the series Frau. Only 12 impressions were printed in the edition. In excellent condition, the matrix perfect, with wide margins (rippling, soft folds at bottom and top margin edges far from image), archival window matting.

A fine fresh impression of this great rarity (Sohn notes that this is one of only 12 impressions that were distributed, although more were apparently planned, thus accounting for the discrepancy between the edition size and the numbering).

Felixmuller was the leader of the Dresden Secessionist movement.
