Otto Weigel (1890-1950)

"Die Welle" ("The Wave")

etching and aquatint

52 × 39 cm  


signed in pencil lower right: "Otto Weigel"

From Weigel's cycle of 9 original etchings entitled Einfälle. 1. Teil, Opus 2 [Ideas. 1st part, Opus 2].  The Daulton Collection owns the entire cycle of nine prints, one of twenty copies.

Otto Weigel (1890-1950) was a pupil of Alois Kolb and Peter Halm; Weigel later became a teacher at the "Meisterschule des Deutschen Handwerks" in Leipzig.  The fantastically surrealist scenes of his Einfälle cycle recall the similar work of Max Klinger and Otto Greiner.
