Erich Heckel (1883-1970), Antwerp, drypoint, 1914, signed and dated in pencil lower right margin. Reference: Dube 123. In excellent condition, the full sheet on a cream/ivory wove paper, 12 1/2 x 7 3/4, the sheet 18 1/4 x 13 1/4 inches, archival matting.

A fine fresh impression, printed in black ink on a cream/ivory paper with substantial plate tone and strong burr from the drypoint work.

Erich Heckel was born in Saxony in 1883. He studied architecture at the Technical College in Dresden where he met Kirchner and was a founding member of Die Brücke in 1905. Heckel moved to Berlin in 1911 with other members of the group, and was a founding member of the Berlin Sezession. Heckel’s early intaglio prints were etchings, but after about 1909 they are almost entirely drypoints.

The area depicted here appears to be Antwerp’s ’Groenplaats’ (or Green Square), dominated by Our Lady’s Cathedral in the background.
