RKD Netherland Institute for art History
This deluxe publication, a unique copy numbered 4/50, is of great cultural and historical value. Two original, hand-signed colour woodcuts, Fabeltier (Mythical creature) by Franz Marc from 1912, and Bogenschütze (The archer) by Wassily Kandinsky from 1908/09, were added at the front of the almanac. The inclusion of these two prints distinguishes it from the trade edition. The almanac is a splendid supplement to the holdings of Expressionist art in the Netherlands. There is no other copy of it in a Dutch collection and this one has never before been exhibited.
