Prior to his death in 2010, artist Sigmar Polke was a prolific printmaker, crafting over 150 editions. His last edition, Dannecker’s House Gecko, was created in 2009. It is comprised of four, large sized images printed on embossed lizard skin using silkscreen and offset lithography.

Entitled The Woman with Child (Die Frau mit Kind), The Two Women (Die Zwei Frauen), The Dance (Der Tanz) and The Women (Die Frau), the works are oriented on the motifs of artist Johann Heinrich Dannecker.
