Lithograph, printed in colors (ochre, black, gray-violet and dark red) 1913.
Signed in pencil lower right, titled and inscribed lower left, from the edition recorded as 35, printed at the Westphalen lithography workshop, Flensburg, on Japan paper. A superb impression, the colors remarkably fresh and vibrant.This important lithograph went through a number of different stages and was printed from up to five lithographic stones for some proofs. Our impression, one of 35, was printed from four stones. First the ochre, followed by the black details, then the grayish-violet background and finally the dark red. All impressions are exceptionally rare as the working proofs were lost during the bombing raid in 1944.Tänzerin is a masterpiece of German Expressionism, and unquestionably Nolde´s greates achievement as a printmaker.
