Elisabeth ConsentiusOnly 5 prints I managed to find by early German printer Elisabeth Consentius. The vase with flowers, numbered 1/30 and dated 1916, was exhibited in the "Münchener Jahresausstellung" in 1916, in the "Grosse Berliner Kunstaustellung" in 1917 and in the "Kunstpalast" in Düsseldorf. Hopefully a better picture will emerge someday. The above photo of this print, measuring 45 x 36 cm, (replacing the sad thumbnail that was here before) was very friendly send to me on request by Ketterer Kunst Auction Houses in Germany from their archive of past auctions. Here are some other examples.
She must have belonged to the earliest group of woodblock printing artists in Germany. I am very curious about where she was taught and trained and if more prints will show up. This last one, below, with the two horses titled “Sommer” I found in gallery specialisised in Artwork with horses. Only 30 km from my house. If you are interested: it's for sale !
Do not hesitate sending me more information on her biography, other examples of her prints or better pictures. You can find my email adress in the profile.
