Selbstbildnis (Self Portrait), 1921
Etching
8×10 IN.

Klipstein 155 vi-vii/VII. Signed with signature stamp (Klipstein 8) lower right. This impression may be of the same paper as K155 vi (a) "kaiserlich Handjapan" paper, but does not bear the pencil signature nor the roman numerals. Similarly it is clearly not K155 vi (b) on "bütten" signed in pencil and numbered with arabic numerals. The final edition - K155 vii/VII is described as "Müncher Verlag" and has no reference to the use of the signature stamp and no indication as to paper type. This may be a proof outside of the K155 vi (a) edition of 30 or a proof taken around the time of the 1947 edition. A fine impression on heavy simili Japan paper, in fine condition with full margins.
