Graphics catalogue
compiled by Drs. A. L. den Blaauwen

In 2011 the Prints Cabinet of The Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam accepted the gift of the complete collection of my graphic work and bibliophile books, presented to the museum by my dear friend, Bram den Blaauwen.

For some of the prints and artist's books listed in this catalogue copies are still available. See 'Graphics availability' for further information.
