SULPIS Emile

FICHE 11586

(1856 - 1943)

Lady with a comb

Drypoint, aquatint and soft ground 

1915

A nice impression on wove paper, signed in pencil lower right, dated lower right, numbered 1/1, 4th state. 

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 works on different engraving processes, in a "print's kitchen" combining several techniques and multiplying the states.

Plate: 180 x 130 mm.

Sheet: 320 x 225 mm.

Condition: light-staining in the upper edge, slight foxing.
