Mother Love (Madonna and Child)

Max Weber (1881-1961), Mother Love (Madonna and Child), woodcut in colors, 1920, signed in pencil lower right margin. Reference: Rubenstein 35, no edition stated. The matrix in good condition, with wide margins (stains in margins, remains of prior hinging visible recto, loss upper left).  4 13/16 x 2 1/8, the sheet 8 3/4 x 5 5/8 inches.

A very good impression of this great rarity, with vivid  colors, printed on a tan/cream Japan paper.

Weber did not make his small color woodcuts in editions, and he changed the colors from one impression to another; thus each print is a variation on a monotype.
