Artist Exploration: Friedrich Karl Gotsch

My ladyfriend picked up a Gotsch woodblock print for me last summer on a swing through Geneva. The Petit Palais, which was in the process of closing for renovations, was basically clearing out the inventory in their gift shop, and she picked up a few nice items for a song.

The pic above - Adam and Eve - is not the one I have, but gives a sense of some of Gotsch's style. Mine is a delightfully simple Charlie Chaplin image ... I'll try to scan a copy when I get a chance.
