Orlik, Still Life with Fruit

Still Life with Fruit, White Roses, Azalea and a Pheasant

Woodcut in colors, ca. 1905, with additional stencil coloring in gouache, Glockner Galerie N. D., 438 x 488 mm. Bright, brilliant impression of this virtuoso effort, on thin japan paper with narrow margins (the full sheet), signed in yellow crayon by both Orlik and by Charlotte Rollins, who did the additional stencil work. Rollins, of whom almost nothing is known, worked in Berlin and may well have been a student of Orlik. The edition was of 30, according to a pencil note at the bottom of this and some other impressions, but the print is uncatalogued in any of the admittedly incomplete listings of Orlik’s prints. It is Orlik’s largest woodcut and his most spectacular print, clearly influenced by his trip to Japan in 1901 and his study of Japanese printmaking.
