Émile Sulpis (prints)


FICHE 11642

(1856 - 1943)

Woman with a veil 

Drypoint and aquatint, impression in brown, handcoloured with blue 

A nice impression on wove paper, signed in pencil lower right, numbered 4/4, 5th 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 worked on different engraving processes, in a "print's kitchen" combining several techniques and multiplying the states.

Plate: 190 x 125 mm.

Sheet: 310 x 220 mm.

Condition: time-staining in the lower edge, slight scattered foxing in the margins.
