Émile Sulpis (prints)


FICHE 11665

(1856 - 1943)

Portrait of a woman with a veil 

Drypoint, soft ground and pencil 


A nice impression on Japan paper, signed and dated in pencil upper left, numbered 10/12, 1rst 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: 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.
