Product description
Frederika Sophia (Fré) Cohen (Amsterdam, August 11, 1903 – Hengelo, June 12, 1943) was a Dutch graphic artist and draftswoman of Jewish descent. Fré Cohen was a successful and iconic woman in the male world of graphic design. She has been of great importance to the Amsterdam School. In her work, both the formal language and the ideals of the Amsterdam School are clearly expressed. Fré Cohen's work is very varied. She made linocuts in the form of bookplates and book bindings, but also drawings, watercolors, posters, medals and even flags. "The beautiful canals of our city - don't use them as rubbish bins!" This is a pre-war print about waste on the streets. A work of art that is actually very topical today. It is a beautiful old print in a wooden frame, wonderful to add to a collection. You can view the work in advance in the treasury of Galerie Rotor in Gorinchem or pick it up after purchase. Sales are made via the Whoppah platform. If desired, we can carry out the framing work for you.

There appears to be some pencil marks on the paper at the top left.
