New: Gertrud Eichhorn


Only a few months ago her name was discovered as a graphic artist and assembling facts to compose her short biography started. A (probably) old studio port folio was opened and offered in single items in an on-line auction platform. Separately, in the summer of 2022 a wonderful and exceptional (imho) woodblock print surfaced by an unidentified artist and signed illegibly. In America. Then, two drawing by her hand showed up, in Berlin.  Somewhere in the brain these separate finds were combined and with the help of collecting agent Tom in Boston (the service is mutual) it was acquired (thankfully it was still unsold)  for this collection. It is no doubt extremely rare and possibly of historic (printmaking) importance.

Getrud Eichhorn was represented in the original BUGRA Das Haus der Frau exhibitions in 1914.
