Émile Sulpis (prints)


FICHE 13606

(1856 - 1943)

[Celebration, Legion of Honor]

Drypoint and soft ground

A nice impression on wove paper, signed in pencil lower right, annotated "état" (state proof).

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: 348 x 398 mm.

Sheet: 430 x 542 mm.

Condition: some folds and wrinkles. Paper skillfully laid on paper to reinforce some small lacks and tears. Some marginal staining.
