Fritz Neumann used the same paper !

Hello !

we made a little step forward in our research concerning RIC :

The paper-stamp "JCB" which is on nearly every print by RIC has also been used by an artist called FRITZ NEUMANN . Obviously Fritz Neumann had a second familyname which is still a mystery for us, as the signatures are very difficult to read.

On some sources you will read that "our" FRITZ NEUMANN has something to do with two other artists called "fritz neumann-hegenberg" and "hermann fritz neumann" - we think this is wrong because of biographical data and because of the so much different directions in their works.

Here are some sample of works by "our" Fritz : (mainly etchings on paper)

A couple of months ago the connections betwenn FRITZ NEUMANN-??????  and RIC were already subject for two posting on "the linosaurus blog" : here are the links to these postings :

and here you can see some samples of signatures by FRITZ NEUMANN :

Interesting point could by a collaboration betwenn FRITZ NEUMANN and Rosenthal. This item is a painting by FRITZ NEUMANN on a porcelain plate by Rosenthal :

So maybe these new information could help us on the way finding the name behind RIC - Thanks for reading and thanks for any feedback !

new blog for unknown artist

Dear visitor, for a couple of years now, we are collectings etchings, lithographs and original paintings of an artist who signed all his works with the simple " RIC ". Now it's time to use the power of internet-communication to find out who is/was behind this name. So please feel free to comment as much as you like and ask as many questions as you want.

All we could say today is that his works are mainly located in Germany, Northern Germany to be more specific. The style reminds Lyonel Feininger. The subjects are located in the maritime life (ship, harbours, waterbirds etc...). Nearly on all items the paper is marked with the stamping "JCB" on the lower left. Signature is on the lower right "RIC".

But now, let the pictures speak for themselves :


Here the stamp which you find on nearly each paper on the lower left :

And the signature :
