FICHE 11664

(1856 - 1943)

Nude layed on the water's edge

Handcoloured aquatint

A nice impression on Japan paper, signed in pencil lower right, numbered 1/1, 1rst state, annotated "couleurs".

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

Plate: 185 x 240 mm.
