Emil Orlik Signed and Numbered Drypoint Etching Bamboo Forest Auf Ceylon or Bambus

Emil Orlik was born Prague on 21st July 1870 and died 1932.
His work in years in Austria shows his secessionist style and like the other artist of the time the draw and lure of the Japanese works of art took him to Japan where he learned the fine art of Woodblock printing.
From 1905-1932 he lived in Berlin Germany where he became the head teacher at the “School for Graphic and Book Art” of the Museum of Decorative Arts.
Here is a wonderful example of Emil Orlik, signed and numbered drypoint of a Bamboo Forest from 1921.
This is the fifth etching from a set of twelve published under the title 'Reise nach Japan'.
