Woodcut on thin paper. Signed with a monogram in the top right in the block.

This is a suspected proof print. Escher designed this print for the Delft students Almanak in 1917. This print is the first publication of Escher: If you compare this work with his other early work, this print is wonderfully successful. Although the text below it looks awkward, the performance itself is nicely balanced and the young Escher does not “avoid” the hands and manages to depict them elegantly.
Also he makes several visual jokes in this print by using a grid: the mirroring between the clothing and background, the grid that makes the letters in the monogram ...

In the book by Wim Hazeu "M C Escher Een biografie” this print is published on pages 209. It is in a reasonably good condition, small yellow spots, slightly yellowed, the paper is bevel cut along the edge. See the pictures that are taken both inside and outside.

This print comes in a sturdy acid-free mat and will be sent by registered mail.
