PIETZCKER, Eva (born 1966)
moku hanga woodcut / 26.5 inches by 18.5 inches / ed 20
German artist Eva Pietzcker works in a variety of media, including the traditional Japanese style of “moku hanga” ((木版画) woodblock printing. The Community Collection is especially rich with prints by Japanese, American, and European artists, many of them strongly influenced by ukiyo-e or “floating world” style.
In 2010 Pietzcker held a master class at the Northwest Iowa Normal art department and produced this work—showing the eastern shore of Sturn und Drang—during her brief residency here. This print was a gift from the artist.
