Jules De Bruycker (1870-1945) - Gravures & Croquis de guerre. This album consists of 6 original and unpublished etchings and 8 reproductions of pen drawings of JDB during the Second World War.
All etchings were hand-signed by the artist’s widow.
The album is complete and in good condition and it comes in the original publishing box.
The total print run was limited to 112 copies. This is number 24. All six etchings are numbered 24/100 and signed Ve (Veuve or widow) J. De Bruycker.
The art critic Paul Eeckhout wrote the foreword and the book was published by J.-E. Buschmann in Antwerp in 1975. The etchings are listed in the online catalogue raisonné by Jules De Bruycker.
Jules De Bruycker was born in Ghent in 1870 and died in the same city in 1945. Together with James Ensor and Walter Vaes, he is considered one of the most important Belgian etchers of his generation.
He has a virtuoso technique that is well reflected in the current etchings that were made during the Second World War.
Condition: the album is in good condition with minor signs of wear. The protective paper of etching 5 and reproduction 7 is missing and the folder does not close properly.
Will be carefully packaged and shipped with Track & Trace.
