Egypterin. 1915.
Drypoint with plate tone.
Schapire 17. Signed and inscribed with the work number "157". On firm copper plate printing paper. 21.6 x 14.7 cm (8.5 x 5.7 in). Sheet: 36 x 27,7 cm (14,1 x 10,9 in).
• Fascinating exotic motif, masterly executed by Schmidt Rottluff in a strong drypoint etching with soft plate tone.
•Very rare. To date only one other proof of "Egypterin" has been offered on the international auction market.
• One of the artist's first and rare drypoint etchings. Schapire mentions a total of only 19 drypoint etchings made in 1915 and in 1920.
• Since the artist had visited the Dresden museum of ethnology, which reopened in 1910, the formal clarity and the simplicity of the exoitic sculpture became decisive for the developemnt of the expressionist Brücke style
