Lyonel Feininger (1871-1956), Wagon Crossing a Bridge (Wagen auf einer Brucke), woodcut, c. 1941, signed in pencil lower left, with the artist’s work number lower center (1867). Reference: Prasse W 82, only state.  In very good condition, with margins, 3 1/2 x 4 3/4, the sheet 4 7/8 x 6 7/8 inches.

A fine fresh proof impression of this intricate cubist composition, printed in black ink on a thin Japan wove paper.

Prasse notes a few proofs, on various papers, some unsigned. This print was included as No. 5 of the portfolio Ten Woodcuts by Lyonel Feininger, 1941, edition of 30; as with many of his small woodcuts, Feininger also used this as a letterhead.  The edition was printed on thin laid paper; it is clear that this is a proof, on a paper typically used by Feininger for proofs.

Provenance: ex Collection: Dr. Ferrand Whaley Hudig (1883-1937, Netherlands), distinguished professor of art history and museum curator,  Amsterdam.  I am grateful to Jean-Francois Deslarzes, grandson of Dr. Hudig, for this attribution.
