WERNER DREWES
Lonely Figure.

Color etching on Japan paper, inked in the manner of a monotype, 1940. 202x163 mm; 8x6 1/2 inches, full margins. Signed, dated and numbered 1-X in pencil, lower margin. A superb impression of this extremely scarce color etching.

Drewes's first color intaglio print. He brushed the color inks on a single plate, resulting in considerable color variations for each impression. Rose 219.
