Concertina art by Gertrude Degenhardt

Recommended Posts

GD has been at this a very long time : one of her etchings was used as the cover of Seamus Ennis' Phelim Ton Ris Castle LP of the late seventies.




She has a whole series of etchings that can be seen as related to (Irish) traditional music, even if the faces of the figures have distinctly German features. I posted these concertina ones to one of the 'concertina in art' thread well over a decade ago. I have a framed original etching of the first image above.


Kenny's gallery in Galway had a series of postcards of these and other  images as well, I don't know if these are still available (Kennys moved out of their shop a good while ago and are now working out of a warehouse in an industrial estate so not as easy to casually walk in)
