Drypoint engraving entitled "Weiden." Robert SCHUMANN, Martin Schoppe.

Drypoint engraving entitled "Weiden."

67 x 55 mm. + wide margins. Printed on ivory laid paper, laid down, and matted. Titled and signed with the artist's initials in pencil at lower margin. No. 54 of an unspecified limited edition.

Schoppe, a musicologist and artist, was director of the Robert Schumann-Haus in Zwickau from 1965-1992 and head of the Robert Schumann Society in Zwickau from 1990-1996. He lived in Liechtenstein, where he created a substantial body of artwork, both paintings and prints. He often made gifts of his prints to friends and musicians; his work rarely comes on the open market.

His works, often inspired by nature, evidence a charming and sensitive introspection. Item #27879
