Ella Iranyi
(Austrian, 1888-1942)
Fisher Boat on the River March
Linocut with chine colle on artist's board
8 1/2" x 10 3/4"

Pencil-signed and titled in the bottom margin. Presented behind glass in a frame that measures 14 1/2" x 17 1/2".

Ella Iranyi was a Jewish Austrian artist whose lively paintings have sold at auction for sums as high as €16,000. Her artistic prime was cut short with the onset of World War II, when she was arrested by the invading Nazi forces and deported to the Izbica ghetto, where she would tragically perish.


Some wrinkling and imperfections to the delicate chine colle tissue paper, original to the piece during its creation. Minor toning from light exposure.
