VOJTECH PREISSIG (1873-1944) CZECHOSLOVAKS! JOIN OUR FREE COLORS! 1918. 35 3/4x25 inches, 90 3/4x63 1/2 cm. Wentworth Institute, Boston. Condition A / A-: minor creases and abrasions at edges; slight time-staining at lower left edge. Linocut. Paper. The most famous in a series of 16 color linoleum cuts produced by Preissig for the Wentworth Institute during the war, calling on Czechoslovaks living abroad to join the Czech legion fighting in Russia, France and Italy. The posters exist in different languages (Czech, Slovak and English) and formats (the images also appear on postcards). A Czech artist, Preissig studied at the School of Applied Arts in Prague and worked with Alphonse Mucha in Paris between 1898 and 1903. In 1910, he came to America, where he taught at Columbia University and was the director of the School of Printing and Graphic Arts at the Wentworth Institute in Boston (whose initials are printed on the poster). The flags depicted in this poster represent the four regions which would, in 1918, comprise Czechoslovakia: Bohemia (the red lion); Moravia (the red and white checked eagle); Silesia (the black eagle); and Slovakia (with the Slovak double cross, similar to the French cross of Lorraine). The red, white and blue flag, with the stars in the middle, was the Resistance flag of the Czechoslovak Independence movement that Preissig had designed for the Czech Government while in Exile. It was supposed to become the Czech national flag, but was somehow overlooked in 1918 when Czechoslovakia was officially formed. Rawls p. 65, Darracott 38, Borkan p. 46, Theofiles 19, Rickards 78, Preissig p. 155 and 159 (both var).

Description:
Lot 53: Vojtěch Preissig (1873-1944) Description: PROPORTIONS. 1922. A study of proportions examining the connection between colors, geometric shapes, lines and space. After a period when Preissig created his best known artworks in the Art Nouveau style, he moved to the US, where he concentrated himself mostly on abstract compositions and typography. This interest of him persisted even after his return to Prague in 1931. He continued to monitor the connections between basic concepts such as man and nature, the relations of things etc. which were depicted by using experimental graphic techniques. Watercolor and pencil on paper, 170x170 mm (mount aperture), signed lower left in pencil by initials „PV“, marked upper right „Proportion“. Collector’’’’’’’’s stamp of Waldes Gallery with inventory number on the reverse, as well as the same thing from National Gallery in Prague and stamp from an exhibition in Topič Salon (2014). Mounted, framed, glazed. PROPORCE. 1922. Studie proporcí zkoumající vztahy barev a geometrických tvarů, linie a prostoru. Preissig se po období, kdy vytvářel svá dnes nejznámější díla v secesním duchu, odstěhoval do USA, kde se převážně věnoval abstraktním kompozicím a typografii. Tento zájem u něj přetrval i po r. 1931, kdy se vrátil do Prahy. Ve svém díle nadále sledoval souvislosti a vztahy mezi základními pojmy, jako např. člověk a příroda, vztahy věcí, které vyjadřoval mj. prostřednictvím experimentálních grafických technik. Akvarel a tužka na papíře, 170x170 mm (výřez pasparty), sign. vlevo dole tužkou monogramem „PV“, zn. vpravo nahoře „Proportion“. Na rubu sběratelské razítko z Waldesovy obrazárny s inv. číslem, totéž z Národní galerie v Praze a razítko z výstavy v Topičově salonu (2014). Paspartováno, rámováno, zaskleno. PROPORTIONEN. 1922. Proportion-Studie untersucht Beziehungen von Farben und geometrischen Formen, Linien und Raum. Nach dem Zeitraum von seinem bekanntesten Jugendstil-Werken zog Preissig in die USA um, wo er sich vorwiegend den abstrakten Kompositionen und der Typografie widmete. Dieses Interesse blieb an ihm auch nach dem Jahr 1931, wenn er nach Prag zurückkehrte. Auch danach er in seinem Werk Zusammenhängen und Beziehungen zwischen grundlegenden Konzepten beobachtete, wie z. B. Mensch und Natur, Dingen-Beziehungen, die z. B. durch experimentale grafische Techniken ausdrückte. Aquarell und Bleistift auf Papier, 170x170 mm (Passepartout-Ausschnitt), links unten mit Bleistift monogrammiert „PV“, bez. rechts oben „Proportion“. Verso Sammlerstempel aus Waldes-Galerie mit Inv. Nr., dasselbe auch von der Nationalgalerie Prag und Stempel aus der Ausstellung in Topič Salon (2014). Passepartout, gerahmt, verglast.

Condition A-: minor abrasions in lower left corner; minor creases and time-staining at edges. Paper. The Wentworth Institute, in Boston, was a premier graphic art center in its day. Vojtech Preissig was a Czechoslovak who came to America and directed the institute between 1916 and 1924. During World War I the institute published a series of linoleum cut posters that Preissig designed. Mostly they were World War I propaganda, calling on Czechoslovaks living abroad to join the fight. By all previous accounts there were only 16 images in the series. This previously undocumented image is listed as number 18, and is one of the rare non-militaristic poster images produced during his American sojourn. All the other images in the series were also reproduced as post cards; it is not known if this image was.
