HANS PURRMANN (German 1880-1966) TWO ETCHINGS, "Vier Badende Frauen (Sommer)," AND "Sechs Badende Frauen am Strand," 1918, on paper, each signed L/R, blindstamp of "Die Schaffenden" L/L of sheets, images: 6 7/8" x 9 1/4" and 6 5/8 x 7 3/4"; sheets: 12 1/4 x 16" and 12 1/4" x 15 3/4". Note: Hans Purrmann's close friendship with Henri Matisse developed while he lived in Paris from 1906 to 1916 and had significant influence on Purrmann's work, as can be seen in the figural styling of the present 1918 etchings and the colorful palette of his paintings. These etchings come from the "Die Schaffenden" (1.Jahrgang 2.Mappe) Portfolio of 1919. Edition of 125. Heilmann 60,61; Söhn 72703-6. Provenance: Property from the Ismar Littmann Family Collection.
Condition
Very good condition overall. Each with minor staining in margins, hinged to backing board and matted.The Ismar Littmann Family Collection was originally amassed by famed German patron of the arts and attorney Ismar Littmann and then later by other family members.  A friend to many of the artists he collected, Littmann did most of his acquiring of avant-garde art during the 15 years preceding the 1933 installation of the political regime, which forcibly removed and sold a large part of his collection that totaled over 6,000 works. Although Littmann died in 1934, part of the family was able to emigrate to the United States and Israel with a portion of the collection and a continued interest in European art of the early 20th century.  Simpson Galleries strongly encourages in-person inspection of items by the bidder.
