About This Item

Finland: Self-published, 1947. 1st Edition . No Binding. Fine. An attractive and early, small drypoint by Tuulikki Pietilä (1917-2009), Finland's most influential graphic artist of the 20th Century. Numbered 7/15 (lower left) and hand-signed/dated in pencil in 1947 by the artist (middle to lower right). Framed and under glass, the frame measures 24cm x 28cm approx. Image measures 7 cm x 7 cm approx. A portrait of a small boy named "Georg" in the image but at the back on the label to verso the title of the work is recorded as "Jori" which is a Finnish nickname for Georg. The print appears to be in VG to Fine condition, not examined under frame. Original backing with label to verso. The frame is a simple wooden one with a small chip right edge near middle, a few smaller ones on the surface of the edges and a few other minor marks, condition commensurate with age - likely to be the original.
