More Information

One of only 5 proof impressions on yellow tissue; before the crack in the block; before the only published trade edition (on ordinary wove paper) in the periodical Neue Blatter fur Kunst und Dichtung, Dresden, October 1919. 

Signed in pencil and annotated 1807, the artist’s inventory number. 

A fine, black impression, on thin yellow tissue. Light toning within previous mat openings, 5/16 to 7/8 inch away from the image; the sheet edges irregularly torn, otherwise in good condition. Very scarce in this state.

The gate depicted here is in the town of Ribnitz, a location in Mecklenburg on the Baltic Sea, where Feininger often spent his summers.
