Kralik, Hanns (German, 1900-1971), Portrait of a Man (possibly a self-portrait), with study, 1930s, pen and ink on paper, the framed portrait measuring 22.5 x 19.5 inches, apparently unsigned, but not examined outside of frame; also includes a pen and ink study of the same portrait, signed in pencil by Kralik, measuring 17 x 12 inches, unframed. Kralik was a painter, printmaker and an active member of the resistance against the Nazis and spent some time in the Börgermoor concentration camp for his Communist activity. He was a member of the Widerstand gegen den Nationalsozialismus and Assoziation revolutionärer bildender Künstler. His early prints show the influence of George Grosz. Provenance: gift of the artist to a Jewish German family that fled Europe in 1936.


Seemingly good condition with some creasing and age; the study with tearing along the edges. Merchandise will be packed and transported by the purchaser at their own risk and expense. A list of recommended shippers is on our website: .
