Émile Sulpis (prints)


FICHE 11569

(1856 - 1943)


Drypoint, impression in yellow

A nice impression on black wove paper, signed in pencil lower right. 

Aside to his interpretation's work, Emile Sulpis shows his times in a series of small original intimate prints. The female figure holds a central place: bathing scenes, languid models, sports and domestic activities are recurring subjects in his paper work. In view of he annotations in the margins, it is a personal production, probably not intended for the public. Emil Sulpis worked on different engraving processes, in a "print's kitchen" combining several techniques and multiplying the states.

Plate: 150 x 105 mm.

Sheet: 240 x 157 mm.

Condition: a printing stain in the upper left corner; otherwise generally in good condition.
