Christiaan Karel Appel (1921-2006, Dutch) "Da Gele Oliphant" (The Yellow Elephant.) The image measures 26" x 20" and framed, it is 28" x 34." This circa 1975 carborundum etching lithograph is hand signed/numbered (35/50) in pencil by the artist, beautifully framed and matted to museum specifications. Ships free in the USA. Appel was a painter of turbulent, colorful, and semi-abstract compositions, who was a co-founder (1948) of the COBRA (for Copenhagen, Brussels, and Amsterdam) group of northern European Expressionists. He was also a noted poet, sculptor and graphic artist. Appel’s style is characterized by thick layering of pigment, violent brushwork, and a crude, reductive figuration.
