About

A Fairy Tale. 1897. Etching. Wisselingh 18. 2 3/4 x 4 3/8 (sheet 5 9/16 x 7 5/8). Edition 100, #51. A rich impression printed on cream laid paper. Signed and numbered in pencil. Housed in a 20 x 16-inch archival mat. A woman stands in a portal and is holding a piece of meat in the air. She is surrounded by lions, leopards and other felines. Marius Bauer made this etching for his print series after the Romanian fairy tale 'La jeunesse inaltérable et la vie éternelle', but eventually did not included the etching. Marius Alexander Jacques Bauer (25 January 1867 – 18 July 1932) was a Dutch painter, etcher, and lithographer, best known for his Oriental scenes. His etchings reflect the influence of Rembrandt. Many of his works were based on photographs he bought during his travels. In 1888, he made a study trip to Istanbul, financed by the art dealership, Van Wisselingh & Co., and decided to make Orientalism his principal subject. Later, he made numerous trips to Morocco, Algeria, Egypt, India, Ceylon, and the Dutch East Indies, sketching and collecting items for Van Wisselingh. In 1894, he won a first-class medal at the Exposition Internationale d'Anvers. Two years later, he was awarded the Willink van Collenprijs. He received the Grand Prix at the Exposition Universelle (1900). In 1902 he married the painter Jo Stumpff, one of the Amsterdamse Joffers. This was followed by a successful showing + at the Louisiana Purchase Exposition. He would continue to exhibit regularly throughout Europe and North America. In 1900, he was named a Ridder in the Order of Orange-Nassau. Six years later, he was upgraded to an Officer for his contributions to the Rembrandt Tri-centennial. In 1911, King Albert I of Belgium awarded him the Order of the Crown and, in 1927, he became a Ridder in the Order of the Netherlands Lion. He was a long-standing member of the Pulchri Studio and Arti et Amicitiae. In 1930, he became an honorary member of the Senefelder Club. A street is named after him in the neighborhood of streets dedicated to 19th- and 20th-century Dutch painters in Overtoomse Veld, Amsterdam.
