Kralik, Hanns (German, 1900-1971), Strasse [Street] with 2 Trial Proofs, 1933, etching on paper, signed lower right, impression 9.75 x 7.25 inches, full sheet 15 x 11, also includes two trial engravings, one with extensive pencil annotation, all unframed. The catalog notes this as zwischendruck [intermediate print], presumably meaning that the final print was never published. Kralik was a painter, printmaker and an active member of the resistance against the Nazis and spent some time in the Borgermoor concentration camp for his Communist activity. He was a member of the Widerstand gegen den Nationalsozialismus and Assoziation revolutionarer bildender Kunstler. His early prints show the influence of George Grosz. Catalog GRAFIK 67. Provenance: gift of the artist to a Jewish German family that fled Europe in 1936.
