20 pages; Clean and secure in original stiff printed wrappers. OCLC: 186976768 Introduction and descriptive text accompanies twenty illustrations reproducing works by Gustav Hagemann. Gustav Hagemann was an important twentieth century German painter, sculptor and printmaker. From 1926 to 1939, Hagemann annually visited the northern lands of Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland and Lapland. Lapland provided the inspiration for Hagemann's art and his paintings, engravings and woodcuts provide a valuable artistic and historical record of the Lapp world. Hagemann's early Lapland engravings and etchings were printed by Otto Felsing in Berlin, one of Germany's master printers of the era. The design elements within these drypoint engravings influenced the German Expressionists.
