NOID - Unidentified Artists
Here you’ll find all the prints interesting, promising and/or affordable enough to join this collection. When I really like a work and in a position to acquire it, not knowing a name of the artist is not critical or important. All help, clues, knowledge and suggestions which could lead to “bring home” a lost work of art is very welcomed. Like wise, readers and passers-by are invited to send their identification problem prints.
Knotwilgen 25/75 (Engl. Pollards; Germ. “Kopfweiden”).
Dutch artist: Carel Kunst ?
Agnes Süssman- ….? The Agnes seems obvious and so is the suggestion for Süssmann. She obviously was married.
No artist by this name could be found. Louis Süssmann (1828-1908) was a sculptor in Berlin married to rich and notorious beautiful bankers daughter Bertha Hellborn (b. 1838). They had 3 (known) children, but not and Agnes.
I wished I was able to read her maiden name.
Half a dozen prints are known by this artist, of which most are in this collection. He or she was not identified and is represented as Celina). Lehe is a small town near the city of Bremen.
I read G.C. Celina or Colina: but all is very unclear.
He or she may have been in a group of artists around Thea Gutmann-Voigt, who is also a still unidentified printmaker.
This large print (“Alpenveilchen”) begonia’s on thin paper was acquired recently (April 2022) and bares no clue, signature or monogram. There were no serious buyers. It could be made by a number of artists, without doubt a professional. My hunch: possibly by a woman printmaker Another copy must bring the solution: a matter of time.
Käthe Lander: unknown artist. The pretty good portrait drawing of a young North African man was found in a flea market and originally was framed in Enschede (NL). Where a Katharina Lander gave birth in 1932 to a still born baby girl. The father: Peter Paul Born (27)
Nothing could be found concerning this couple.
More still unidentified but interesting prints from the collection will be uploaded regularly as the Gallery-Website gradually will be stocked.
This is a one mans endeavour so please be patient and return every now and then.
