c.1950s, Karl Weschke

Edition Number: N/A
Unsigned, but sold directly for one of the Weschke family members.

Framed in a reconditioned mid-century frame – the frame has light wear / marks, but is in good condition and ready to hang.

Mounted in conservation standard board

This early woodcut by Karl Weschke is one of only four that are known to exist (two were purchased by the Tate in 1997). The theme probably dates from the time he worked as an assistant lion feeder in a circus during the 1950s. 

This print has had some conservation work. It has had a light surface clean and has had an aqueous wash to strengthen the paper and to remove acid build up from the paper. Two of the corners have suffered paper losses, and these have been replaced with paper repairs.  A false border has been added at the top to allow mounting and framing.

Availability: In stock

The frame is 'pre-owned' and as such has some imperfections, dings marks etc.
