Émile Sulpis (prints)


FICHE 11659

(1856 - 1943)

The letter #2

Drypoint and soft ground

A nice impression on wove paper, signed in pencil, numbered 2/2, 2nd 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. Emile Sulpis worked on different engraving processes, in a "print's kitchen" combining several techniques and multiplying the states.
