Kalender 1927 — oktober, 1926, 35 x 21 cm
While we were in Amsterdam, we visited the Van Gogh museum, which was actually a bit disappointing and not as extensive as one would expect a museum dedicated to a single artist would be. However, one of the highlights was not found among Van Gogh’s numerous portraits of women’s heads (there were about 20 of them) but rather in discovering a Dutch artist and printing innovator — H.N. Werkman — who I’d never encountered before. And so, here’s to welcoming October with a Werkman print from 1927.
You can check out more of Werkman’s prints at the Groninger Museum’s online archive.
