Fleischerei (The Butcher's)


signed Grosz (lower right)

watercolour on paper

63.1 by 43.5cm., 24¾ by 17⅛in.

Framed: 77 by 57.8cm., 30¼ by 22¾in.

Executed in 1930.


The authenticity of this work has been confirmed by Ralph Jentsch.

Executed on cream wove paper, not laid down and attached to the mount intermittently along all four edges. The sheet is slightly time-stained. There is a small tear to the extreme upper right corner (approx. 1.5cm) and one to the upper left corner (approx. 2cm). There is some intermittent tape remnants to the extreme edges and a historic strip of tape along the upper edge of the verso - none of which are visible when framed. There is a tiny nick to the upper part of the extreme left edge and some spots of foxing in places. The colours have retained a wonderful vibrancy. This work is in overall good condition.
