Details

An original signed realist etching of a monkey by German artist Kurt Meyer-Eberhardt (1895-1977).

The etching is printed on 300lb hand made acid free paper and is signed by the artist in pencil in the bottom right below the print.

The printers stamp is positioned clearly in the bottom left corner of the sheet. There does not appear to be an edition number on this piece of artwork.

The artwork comes unframed and unmounted however, the edges have been trimmed as if once framed. There is also evidence of mounting archival tape on the back of the piece and there is a small overlap on portions of the edge of the sheet. They could be trimmed without much difficulty. There is also what appears to be a faded frame outline on the front face of the piece.

The back of the piece also has a number of pencil annotations.

Size:

Image SIze: Width: 8 3/4" x Height: 12 1/4"

Total Size: Width: 12 3/4" x Height: 17 3/8"

Condition:

The piece definitely has some issues beginning with the faded area on the image side of the sheet. There is a clear lie around the outside of the piece creating a two tone effect on the sheet. The image itself does not display this fading issue so if re-framed this issue could be hidden.

The artowrk also has what appears to be a waterstain on the left hand edge of the piece. It is noticable and may detract from the subject matter of the image if not framed. In addition there is slight evidence of water spotting along the bottom edge, concentrated in the right corner.

The edge of the paper has a tear on the right edge and a little wear and tear from handling but on the whole is in good condition.

The actual image is in excellent condition. There are a couple of small white spots in the background portion, however, the monkey is clearly depicted and the artist's signature is highly visable.

More about the Artist:

Kurt Meyer-Eberhardt is one of the most famous and revered 20th century dog artists. He was born in 1895 in Leipzig , Germany and died in Munich in 1977. He studied at the Weimar Academy of Fine Arts, where he became a student under the artists Theodor Hagen and Lionel Feininger. He rejected a professorship in Weimar and went to Munich in 1918, where he decided to work entirely on animal engravings.

In 1926 he held his last exhibition in the "New Secession." He was a staunch individualist who rejected the offer of a professorship in Weimar because he valued his independence too much. The only thing he wanted was to continue depicting his beloved dogs, cats and other animals.

His work has been published by the Hanfstaengl Publishing Company in Munich since 1917. His engravings are still published today at the printing shop in Munich – formally Franz Hanfstaengl, Munich . All etchings are still printed on 300lb hand made acid-free paper, printed by hand from the original copper plates, using the same directions as given by the artist himself.
