Erich Heckel  (German, 1883 - 1970) Woodcut Print.
Title: Junges mädchen / Young Woman (Dube 264 IIIB, Davis-Riffkind 1038, Brücke 14).
Original woodcut carved & printed in 1913, woodcut later revised in 1920. There are a few signed impressions pulled in 1913; in 1920 he created a new edition for the deluxe art periodical, Genius, in which according to Annemarie & Wolf-Dieter Dube, Erich Heckel. Das Graphische Werk: "He significantly altered the woodblock, carving it more deeply to prevent the printing of wood stock marks that he characteristically allowed in his earlier work to provide a variety of tonality and texture. The alterations give the print a sharpness and precision lacking in its earlier states as deep, unmodulated black is contrasted directly to pristine, unmarked areas of pure paper." The size of the edition is unknown. Illustrated in a publication devoted to Heckel’s drawings and prints, Kunstblatter der Galerie Nierendorf 30, which lists 197 items and illustrates 33.
Excellent condition.

Biographical details from the Exhibition: Ein Künstlerpaar Der Moderne” - Artist Couple in the Modern Movement Emil Maetzel and Dorothea Maetzel-Johannsen 23 November 2018 - 24 March 2019, Museum August Macke Haus, Bonn.

Emil Maetzel (1877-1955) and Dorothea Maetzel Johannsen (1886-1930) were important representatives of the artistic avant-garde in Hamburg in the first years of the Weimar Republic when the spirit of renewal resounded through German society. With the founding of the Hamburg Secession in 1919, the city experienced a second important phase of Expressionism, one in which the Maetzels played a decisive role.

Emil Maetzel studied architecture and was a self-taught painter. Although Dorothea Maetzel-Johannsen attended drawing school, she too was not professionally trained as an artist. In Berlin, where Emil Maetzel was stationed during the First World War, the couple benefited from opportunities to visit important exhibitions such as the Berlin Secession and Herwarth Walden's "Der Sturm" Gallery. A decisive event for the artists was their discovery of African art, which they began to collect and whose figures they integrated into their works.

1919 to 1923 were the years of Hamburg's first artist festivals, which ignited a veritable firework of racy performances by dancers, singers and actors and provided the outlet for a more permissive societal cohesion. The festivities helped bring staid citizens together with members of the artistic Bohème. The ever exotic settings and costumes were the results of the fantasy of artists, among whom Emil Maetzel played a prominent role as painter. Artistic freedom found its intellectual expression in the emancipation of living styles from conventional ideas of morality.

The Maetzels followed diverging artistic paths in the 1920s. With visits to Paris (1925) and Gotland (1929) Dorothea Maetzel-Johannsen underlined her increasing independence before she died of heart problems in 1930 at the age of only 44. Emil survived her by 25 years. In 1933 the 12th Exhibition of the Hamburg Secession is closed down by the Nazi regime and Maetzel was dismissed from the Civil Service. Five of Maetzel’s wood cuts owned by the Kunsthalle were “cleared” from the museum  and probably destroyed amongst many others. 

In his house in Volksdorf he then spent lonely years, although taking advantage of the opportunity for painting excursions in northern Germany. After 1945 he started out on a new productive phase promoted as the leader of the Hamburg City Planning Commission and appointed President of the re-founded “Hamburg Secession” in 1948.

Figures such as these were created as part of the complex system of 'grade' rituals through which an individual was able to progress through a succession of different ranks, each of which conferred increasing social status, religious knowledge and, most crucially, equivalent rank in the afterlife. Indeed, on rare occasion it was possible for an individual who had attained the highest possible grade to become a member of the 'living dead', possessing the status of a revered ancestor even before their physical death. Progression in grade could take several years, and each increase in rank required ever greater expense and effort, with the initiate compelled to commission artworks and to distribute wealth, usually in the form of sacred tusker pigs. Figures were used in only one ceremony and different sizes were required for each increase in grade. During the grade rites, grade figures are erected on the dancing ground and serve as temporary abode for the spirits associated with the grade. After the ceremony, the figure, its purpose served, is left on the dancing ground, its supernatural powers waning as it slowly deteriorates.

The majority of these fine and rare chairs seen in the marketplace were made by OPE in Sweden and this may be the case for these chairs as well, with Ilums Bolighus being the retailer. However, these chairs were deaccessioned by the Royal Danish Embassy in Tokyo and it is possible that these were a specific commission since Illums Bolighus holds the  Royal Danish Warrant for Furniture to Her Majesty the Queen of Denmark.

IB KOFOD-LARSEN(1921 - 2003)

A well-known Danish furniture designer and a Graduate of the Royal Danish Academy in Copenhagen. In 1948 he won a competition of Holmegaard Glass as well as the annual prize of the Danish Kunsttischlerzunft. In the 1950s, Kofod-Larsen designs furniture for various companies at home and abroad, including names such as OPE, G-Plan and Faarup. Two well known designs are the "66" sideboard made of rosewood and the "Elizabeth Chair" from 1956,  named after her royal Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, after she was buying two of the armchairs in 1958. Later on, Kofod-Larsen is very successful in working with Selig, which acquired the rights to thousands of his furniture designs from the fifties and sold them on the market in United States. Characteristic of his work is an organic and minimalist design, as well as working with high quality materials such as teak, rosewood and precious leather. Furniture from this designer are considered to be collector’s items for their timeless beauty and high quality materials and craftsmanship are universally appreciated.
