Joseph Uhl (New York 1877 - Bergen 1945) American by birth he moved to Germany at an early age. He studied painting and printmaking at the Art Academy of Munich. Prior to WWI he concentrated on painting and began his mastery of etching and engraving after the war. He created prints of children, nudes, general figure studies, and allegorical images. His work in Germany owes much to the influence of the German Jugendstil movement (Art Nouveau).
Joseph Uhl ....Self-Portrait
I made the scan of this little work larger to show the detail of the drawing. The economy of line is really phenomenial. Uhl must have had the visual acquity of an eagle. The small print measures 4.50 inches by 2.25 inches. If I were a betting man I would wager the small pencil drawing listed in the next post is by Joseph Uhl also.
