Draum (Dream) by Ida Teichmann (German, b. 1875 - ), original lithograph on rice paper, circa 1910, artist signed in lower right margin. Condition: two very minor spots of foxing (not affecting the figures) and some mat burn outside of the image area. Newly matted and framed. Ida Teichmann was a female German artist known for her drawings and lithograph portrayals of adolescent girls and young children. Teichmann was born in Frankfurt am Main and was largely self-taught as an artist. She sought to capture the essence of the adolescent form. Her works show direct influence in their style from the painters of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood in England. All of her lithographs were engraved directly onto the stone by the artist and then printed by her in very small editions, so that each was produced entirely by Teichmann, and therefore a true original. She used a fine rice paper for the prints, because it more faithfully reproduced the fine lines and shading of her drawings. Size of image: 6.5" x 12". Included in the sale of this print is a German newsprint review of the artist's work, dating from 1918, that includes this image as well as others by Teichmann.
